Poor Hayden, the best Ducati ever mm? AIm shure it is but is only on the Chassi, If Ducati can t change there engine they will not improve.. Some people talck about Rossi but how you feel finishing beahind Randy?lol Its **** to wach.. 4sure Philip Island is one track that is good for CRTs they can keep there corner speed and since the track is have nice flow they dont need to much the extreme aceleration that one Motogp bike have to make good lap times.. But dont worrie Randy can t keep this pace tomorow

To think you used to hold the record for fastest race lap here at phillip island. Perhaps going to 1000cc was a mistake, seems like all the lap times are down this year. Dorna probably considers that progress.

Unfortunate. Hayden definitely knows how to ride a bike around this track, but that Ducati continues to make his life miserable. He's a good man for sticking with it, especially after that bike has made so many greats look so bad.

I just hope Hayden ask his crew chief to add more punch into the engine mapping in the warm-up session. Especially, the mid-range level set to brutal. Set all the suspension to maximum hard and the TC with less intrusive to let Hayden go crazy in the race.

Doesn't matter if the Ducati behave like Hyena or 800 lbs. of Gorilla as long as it has the mid-range grunt to chase Honda and Yamaha at turns.

I really like Nicky, top bloke. In 2006 he rode great on that Repsol Honda, but PLEASE, stop it with the "poor Nicky". He's the one that continues to sign for Ducati, nobody else. Rossi thinks it's a pile of crap so it going back to Yamaha with his tail between his legs, but Nicky has once again signing with Ducati, so give it a rest with the sympathy!

Come on fella.. i dont hate Hayden!! I like Americans they are allways cool and most of then nice guys!! But you talck about Hayden like he was the Man he had balls to stay with Ducati, but that not true!! Hayden is only with Ducati because he dont have other Team to go, he prefer to be on one Factory and win more money have more stuff.. All bet with you that if Suzuki or kawasaki where here he had talck with is manager to find other deal.. 4sure he is a racer he love this and if he can he whant to win, has all riders if you have the best bikes its more esay to win but if since he leave Honda he never did one Champion that was a contender more Honda only let him play because they have some hope after the 2006 title that hayden would enter for the top more esay with less mistakes but he runs 2007 and 2008 to bad years for one Repsol rider.. Then him Ducati better not even to remember!! I think he had grow has a rider and h trys to be more consistente now, maybe if he was r

@
I think he had grow has a rider and h trys to be more consistente now, maybe if he was riding a Tech 3 he could have show better speeds, but do you think that he would be better then Cal or Dovi?? Honestly other Teams even Satellits have better options to take a risk then Hayden.. I hope he can have a decente year him 2013 and if not will be mostly for the bike but if he whant to stay him Motogp more time its better to worck for have the year of is live or no one will whant Hayden..

Hayden dont loock like the rider that enjoy taking part on CRT, but Randy that is has fast and good has Hayden ride a CRT.. If Hayden end the 2013 sesson and Ducati dont whant him anymore insted of go to WSBK he can get one CRT 4sure.. and with this new ECU for 2014 he can still be fightingh and maybe having one bike that can be competitive enaught to make good races.. we will see how Motogp will go of for the Future!! Maybe if this ECU really put the CRT him level with some factorys then he can also win races..

No mate, you need to READ what people say. I didn't say that at all. Americans are always cool? Erm, I think even people from the USA would disagree with you there! As for the rest of your post? Never Mind The Bollo**s, here's The Sex Pistols!
