You also have to take into consideration the different uses that the Hurricane, Spitfire and Bf-109 were put to in the BoB. The Bf-109 ( and Me-110) were used as bomber escorts. The Spitfires, whose performance was equal to the Bf-109, were tasked with drawing those escorts away from the bombers. Once that was done, the Hurricanes could home in on the bombers and chop them up. No doubt the people on the ground saw the actions involving the Spitfires and Bf-109s as exciting duels, whereas the attacks of Hurricanes on the bombers were more like sharks attacking a sick whale. There is also the fact of the place where the fights took place. The British were fighting over their own territory, so they could force land anywhere without becoming POWs. On the other hand, the Germans nor only had to get away from British territory, but cross the Channel. It's 55 nm from Maidstone to Calais by straight line which would take about 10 minutes at 300 kts.
