From a pedantic point of view, consider language as sort of a close relative to mathematics, you are correct.

But the way we use the language does not necessarily follow math rules. If you ask the man in the street, say "Car A drives 30 mph. Car B drives two times faster. How fast does car B drive?" I am quite certain that less than one in a hundred will answer "90 mph".

Math arguments are not always applicable to natural language. "8 times faster" is interpreted similar to "8 times as fast".

(And I am quite sure that you were not really in doubt about the intended meaning. You just found an opportunity to point out what you consider to be somebody else's mistake. Here I'll give you another opportunity: I could care less!)
