Nicky Hayden's lap of Laguna Seca.

"I like the challenge of the Corkscrew but this is probably my favourite corner on the track. It's downhill but it's got a bit of bank and there's definitely a good line that allows you to best get the power down and use the camber to your advantage."

Turn 10
"This corner is so important because it leads you into the final corner, which is the best place to pass, so you've got to get through here cleanly and get a run down into the hairpin."

Turn 11
"This last corner is all about just braking, braking, braking and trying to keep the rear wheel on the ground. It's probably the easiest corner on the circuit to crash at because it's quite bumpy and you trail the brake a long time. A lot of guys get caught out here - and I've done it too many times. Then you just get the bike lifted up and try to keep the front wheel down and accelerate as hard as you can up the hill for another bite at Turn One."
