so he breaks the little finger on his LEFT hand, so cant test... maybe he should call John Hopkins who, after breaking two fingers in his RIGHT hand (you know, the one that pulls the brake, and works the throttle)won two races at Donnigton, and was riding that hard that he RE-broke them. (and still won two races)Vale, time to man the fack up

I know a bust finger hurts but its seems a bit whimpy lol wonder if he will still be on the track ? I have to admit im a rossi fan but i think his kind of frightened by the duke tbh and lost all his confidence. I still wonder if he will drop a bombshell for 2012 hmmm

@A1 I understand all that, but they are throwing a ****load of money into this project already. And Rossi's opinion and testdata should be worth a heck of a lot more than Hayden's. Pedrosa was never impressed with Hayden's directions and Wayne Rainey slams Nicky in a recent interview. So why waste a test day.

Wow.....what if Hayden cracked a nail on the way to testing.....who would they get next?

Abraham concussed, Barbera broken up, Have to call in DePuniet but only if he didn't get scratched by the cat.

I remember when Pedrosa got injued and Hayden had to make the whole testing. Pedrosa was saying plain an clear that Hayden testing was crapp because he doesn't know how to develop a bike well.

So, Ducati, please, get the test postponed until Rossi recover or is a waste of 1 important test or you are gonna be doing the same you guys did with 5 testing this year... wasting time on a carbon frame that Jeremy Burgess said the past year that was wrong.

Ducati, stop beeing a bunch of dumbass! Hayden means crap for any test!
