Hayden is a good company man saying the right things to keep the factory happy and to keep his job. He has a good attitude and works hard and is fairly tough to ride with injuries. Ducati has repayed him for his loyalty. Hopefully in the next few races the Ducati will be better. However as he's still recovering from the injuries I wouldn't expect much from him but I'm sure he'll try hard.

I was amazed at his crash. In the finish, it was lucky that he went over the fence. It could have been a lot worse. I hope he has a great race. It used to be a happy hunting ground for Ducati - Capirossi's last win was at Motegi in 07.

You bet ya it is exciting. A bike that is still improving so it could do well at any moment. A bike not yet there so it could give a rider a frightening experience at any moment.

@ marc
ducati were actually planning to stab him from behind. They gave him contract only because rossi left and they needed atleast one rider with previous experiance to continue development.
and actually they have their eye set on bradl for 2014
both honda and ducati dont give respect to riders only yamaha has done that

It would of been very cruel for Ducati to dump Hayden . he has made do with the bucking bronco that Casey liked so much even though it wasn't doing him any favours as far as his credentials go . Hopefully he can reap the benefits of the developments and go on to outscore Dovi to keep his place in the team . Great guy always gives his best and i reckon most fans like him as a person .

Dear me how many more years of development,Honda and Yamaha don't seem to have as much problem,next year they will be stronger and Ducati will have to catch up and develop again.
