<b>8000 40 68 102 139 171 206</b>

260 Km/h = 162 mph

5th gear 171mph @ 8000 rpm, equates to 7579 rpm @ 162 mph
6th gear 206mph @ 8000 rpm, equates to 6291 rpm @ 162 mph

Still within safe operating ranges, and I believe he was in 6th anyways (i'll confirm).

I agree he was probably in 6th. 5th is running a little hot at 7579, but you are right both are supposed to be ok. Don't forget it's just an estimated 260 kph to start with.
