Python interpreter speed

Standard Python interpreter's implementation is written in C language. C
code while compilation, is compilled into machine code (the fastest
code). Python code is compiled into into byte-code which is also some
sort of fast machine code. So why Python interpreter is slower than Java
VM? Being written in C and compilled into machine code, it should be as
fast as C/Asm code.
What's wrong with that?
Greets and thank you.
