Nice race from Nicky. I saw a bike go off the track at the top of my screen and thought it was Haydon. Hate it for Bradl but happy for Nicky. Hope they get a bunch of new parts for next race. I fear they will begin getting it sorted at the end of the year and won't sign him for next year.

@Fast Eddie

I agree with you. This guy is a class act who does his job well and pushes the bike to the limit. Sure he doesn't ride like Stoner or Marquez but he seriously pushes that bike's limit. I fear that they will not sign him, but maybe Suzuki will pick him up. I can only hope that he will continue on with MotoGP. I'm still dumbfounded how a MotoGP Champion of his caliber is relegated to 7-10 spots. He's a good rider but I think his best chance to become a World Champion again maybe in World SBK.

Hey, I think his job is safe. Who besides Casey has outperformed him on a Ducati? Nobody. He is fast, a great test rider, and his race craft continues to be at the sharp end of the field. I think he stays with Ducati another couple of years and will enjoy a better bike for next year.
