It's good to see Nicky up there in the front, but let's not get too excited. He's still over a second behind Lorenzo's pole time. It isn't "all smiles" on Nicky's side of the garage at all.

In a wet race tomorrow, things are going to be completely unpredictable.

Don't get to used to that bike. VR will have it out from under you in no time. Even when Nicky was WC he was still a B rider on his team. Its a good thing he's such a good sport.

as a rider he may be not KC or JLo, but hats off you've gotta respect his attitude. The only time I've seen him loose it was when Pedro took him out in blockhead move at Estoril

I've said it before, NH doesn't whinge or whine, but gets on with the job and really works hard.
He doesn't slag off the bike or the team, and it looks like Ducati are finally allowing him the freedom to develop the bike his way.
Didn't Stoner say to Hayden "forget Rossi do your own thing" and now its paying off.

Don't forget that they are sending all the Ducatis out on different settings. We don't know that it IS Nicky's setting. It may be an extrapolation of Rossi's, or a combination of all 3 (pramac included, not sure of Karels position)
Yesterday Rossi's setup was rubbish but at least they tried it. They are testing during race weekends remember.
I'd love to see Nicky on the podium, can't see it happening though. Tyres and consistancy are going to influence this race...or blind luck. I hate wet races.

Well, back to the normal Fayden schedule - start out hard, go all out and fade away.

Although, thanks to a habitual first few laps, Hayden was able to look good in front if his teeth lovn fans who happen to ignore that Hayden fastest lap places him tenth, which is pretty much where he would be IF he did not happen to pull A "fast ONE" during qualifing.

Anyways, Chances are that Hayden will AGAIN finish the season 8th or so - as usual - and fitting for a worthy Champ...
