Nicky still has the capability (when fit) of being a consistent top 10 runner. OK, he's not likely to see the inside of a factory team garage again but there are also the mid-running teams where Nicky can perform at an appropriate level and do a good job.
Coupled with his professionalism, team ethic and sponsor-friendly attitude, he deserves to be there more than a number of other, much better paid folk.

its a same Hayden finally cant run at home, but Camier could be a good replacement (at least could be better than that old Honda test racers, all my respect to them but they arent fast enough), yes, no experience on MotoGP, Bridgestones and circuit, but Camier is jumping from one bike to other this year and prooves to be fast, lets see if he can get a top15, i hope so, i trust him, what happen if he do well? hope he find a decent ride for next year, give him a Kawa on WSBK and lets see...

JACKBEE: It's no wonder that manufacturers like the way Nicky conducts himself.

When he finally hangs up his crash helmet, he is very diplomatic and will have a great future in media, he is a class act.



WTF is he going to say???? "I hope he sucks on my bike"? or something to the effect? What are you drinking - Kentucky moonshine?

Hayden is a good PR man - learned well from his salesman father. Hayden has a very good management company - as good as any celebrity would have running in the background (preparing interviews, TV appearances, even shows, image consultants etc) . Do you think the hick manages this himself?

I hope he is back in time for the British MotoGP, but not at the expense of a long term recovery.

Typically classy comments, as always, from a classy guy. Naturally he's frustrated to miss his home GP (and which rider wouldn't be?) he nevertheless is showing full support for his stand-in. Let's hope the rest does him good, and that he gets those Honda upgrade parts ASAP. Maybe the doctors can insert pneumatic valves in that dodgy wrist while they're sat it....?

GO NICKY! (And Leon....!)

Maybe it's time for him to hang up his boots. He's on a Honda Satellite bike and he just can't run the numbers anymore. I'm sure DMG would love to have him on a 600, he should be able to handle that now ad he'd be closer to Earl as well.
