The fact is Hayden is trying his heart out and you are not.
How much are you paid again? pottering around making excuses, whilst waiting for Ducati to give you the bike that will do most of the work for you (as you had at Honda and Yamaha) is just being lazy.
So much for it being all about the rider, what happened with the 'I must change my style to suit the Ducati'? GOAT my @ss.

It's encouraging that Hayden's best lap was 3 hundredth's of the fastest lap, I know Nicky loves Silverstone and always goes well there but it shows that Ducati must have made some progress!

I wasn't surprised at Rossi yesterday, he wasn't good here last year and I expected him to be bad at Silverstone this year too, he'll bounce back and be up there with Hayden at Assen, every rider has a bogey track and Rossi has found his.

I hope Ducati can make a lot of progress by Laguna Seca, it'll make it better for the championship and Rossi needs the bike to be competitive as I think the factory Honda & Yamaha for next year is out of question now!

We were all exited we DORNA announced the return of 1000 cc. We were all looking forward the spectacle that this would bring.
But no, DORNA wishes to make CRT the future of MotoGP, so to limit power superiority of Proto type factory bikes they make then tyres weak and feable. Now the non-CRT bikes will need to be ridden like the 250s so that the tyres will last.
No offense to JL, so get used of not seeing Hayden, Rossi or Stoner backing it in or power sliding out of a corner for the next couple of years.
MotoGP is going to boring to watch until there is only CRTs on the grid and then tyre restrictions will be lifted.

"We were all exited we DORNA announced the return of 1000 cc."

No "we" weren't.

Some of us had the wit to know that without other changes elsewhere (which there was no sign of) that changing to 1000cc "per se" wouldn't make a darn bit of difference.

That seems to be a huge part of the problem, people blindly applauding every new idea Dorna conjure up without actually thinking about it's consequences.

Rookie rule, single tyre rule, engine rule, even the change to four-strokes, all hailed as a huge improvement and where has it all taken us??????

I also agrea that Rossi was Off on this race, anyway i allways beliave on him.. is tellin the true he had problems end of story, everybody had problems and iven Hayden had some tracks that suit him.. About Dorna the rules are equal for everybody so i guess people have to aceppted.. I tinck most the changes where well done 1000cc engines great- one tyrte manufactor excelent- less engines per year- well most of the rules comes with times and situacions and the World is living one big Crise and thats the way we go, i enjoy very much Motogp its my favorit sport so i have to acepted this solutions also CRT bikes.. I really miss the 2 strokes and i tinck that was a mistake not continuing with 2 strokes after 2002, they kill the engine and what was need was mantain 2 strokes for Teams with less money him order to be competitive with other solutions and its more cheap.. but also have to adimit was a gold age of Motogp after 2003 many battles great show

it has got to be asked how is it that a full blown factory bike is only just faster than the CRT's? all that backing for what. the class has become so boring even F1 is more excting!!!!.
why not just put the Moto2's in the same race and save more money.. if this mess is all about saving money then why do the CRT teams have more engines? are they free????
