The reason why you don't swim as well when they are other people in your lane is because your stress level probably raises up one notch, I know I get the same when in a busy lane so I always start swimming with a heavy focus on relaxing in those instances (close on yourself try to forget the other swimmers around you).

As to busy lane, 2 people in your lane is not busy! I swim in 3 different swimming pools, 2 around where I live where you usually get 3 or 4 people in my lane, and the last one downtown Paris where I work, where I get up to ... 10 people in a lane! I usually swim there purely for fitness because it's impossible to keep a focus on being relaxed ^^.
