@ Krusty the Klown

Let's be honest here. While he hasn't quit or complained openly, he also isn't A SOUGHT AFTER RIDER WITH A LOT OF OPTIONS. He knows that, so he plays the PR card candidly (as would I). If he had other options, he surely would consider and/or exhaust them. Hell, he almost didn't get another ride with Ducati (because they were surely exhausting their other options....Nicky was the last alternative). It's political, just like every other decision in life. Hayden is no more (or less) hard working than any other factory or top level satellite rider. They all put in a lot of time to compete at this level.

Hayden has always been the same way, doesn't matter if it's contract time or not. Don't matter if he is at the top of the list of wanted riders or at the bottom. He is a professonal and a genuinly nice guy.

Funny, I thought the Rossi haters would have jumped on the bandwagon with this thread. Hayden said that the bike understeers and (tactfully) that they have to fix 'whatever the problem is'.

So where are the haters to put Nicky right that there is nothing wrong with the Ducati, its just Rossi not trying hard enough?????????

Perhaps they will show up when they are bored with their Playstations.....

@GPmark
I'm not a Rossi hater just a Rossi realist! The duck has been, and still is the fastest thing but it just never has had the handling consistency of the yamaha. Difference is that at some tracks Stoney could win and Valentino has got so lost even Hayden is going back to an older frame!
