Player ship speed vs. AI speed

I read somewhere that the player's ship gets a speed boost over the AI in similar ships.

Is this true? (Or perhaps the AI doesn't normally fly at 100% speed?)

If so, how much faster is the player? A certian percentage? Or a discrete ammount?

I thought it was like 33%, and that is lost, as well as the ability to reincarnate, with the usage of strict play.

In non-strict play, the player's ship is 50% faster than its strict-play equivalent. I do not know if acceleration or turning is affected.
