Is it not better to know you are a good 2nd rider and to try to be the best you can be than to think and say you're one of the aliens and fail miserably?

Hayden is realistic about his abilities and where he can be with Ducati. Instead of displaying belladonna behavior like so many of his peers, he is working his butt off both on and off the track for his employer. He should be lauded for his ethics, not slanted for not being the best. If more people worked like him, it might be less interesting for the press, but we'd probably get better races and quicker development.

Thats more chipping away than fighting. The way he took honda making him no2 when he was there world champ no fight was shown then? I like hayden but if he was a true fighter ducati would have 2 no1 riders like lorenzo made happen in yamaha.

Rossi is probably one of the best fighters on track. Anyone who says he isn't haven't actually been watching Motogp for the past 10 15 years. Ducati poowweerrr!.

I have no issues with Nicky, but he is still a filler, just like the CRTs. They get in the way of watching the fastest bikes/riders in the world. Kind of like Val of late.

Sleepy,
Last time I checked, Nicky had won a world championship, and he has been consistently the fastest Ducati. Not exactly a back marker. If by "faster riders" you mean Stoner, Lorenzo, Pedrosa, well, then everyone gets in the way of them on the factory Yamahas and Hondas, and a race series with four or five riders would hardly be interesting, would it? Rather, let's hope ducati get there act together and we can have a couple more riders competing for podiums, if not immediately for race wins.

Good post!

@ benignlyindifferent

Ummm! I like Hayden, but you can't spout misinformation and expect not to be called on it. Hayden has been "consistently" the fastest Ducati? Really? Did you not pay attention last season at all? VR was ahead of him in all but a few races. Yes, he had a great Qatar run, but FP2 at Jerez has VR out-pacing him by a fairly significant margin. Sunday's race will be interesting.
