Where are all the people laughing at Hayden now? It's so silly to even use testing times at this stage as any type of comparison. Its testing and during a test, you're not trying to win points. You're trying to make your machine the best it can be for next year. And you don't do that by going all or or showing your true speed before next year. Madness....

Way to go Nicky. I hope you were able to get some good information and help steer Ducati in the fast direction. I would love to see you on a competitive bike next year.

Honestly I am pretty shocked that an all out prototype racing machine with a former world champ on it could only beat a WSB by only a tenth! That is shocking to me. But what really confuses me is why the CRT bikes are so much slower? Surely the CRT bikes have less restrictions than the WSB's proper, yet they are slower?

Ahhh come on guys, i didn't hate WSBK, we must realize if WSBK can compete with MotoGP and it should mean "compete".

and badly, I guess Honda, Yamaha, Ducati have a WSBK bike too, so if WSBK bike have same performance as MotoGP bike why they spend lot of money just to get that "0.090s"???

and BTW Nicky best time with ducati on this track much better than this, 1'39.560... and this is short track, can you imagine how in Sepang, Philips, Qatar, etc.

For me let it be, WSBK for the pride of Commercial Bike, MotoGP for the pride to Prototype Bike..
