Hayden: Catalunya, Isle of Man, Silverstone

"Silverstone is a track I enjoyed a lot last year because it's big, long and fast. I'm looking forward to it" - Nicky Hayden.
Nicky Hayden, who missed the Silverstone podium by just 0.217sec after a last-lap pass by countryman Ben Spies in the 2010 event, is looking forward to this weekend's British GP return.

Since finishing eighth in last Sunday's Catalunya race, Hayden has completed a parade lap at the Isle of Man TT - alongside Cal Crutchlow and Mick Doohan - and is eager to tackle the fast Silverstone circuit.

“It's been a short week, because Barcelona was just a few days ago. After the race, I went to the Isle of Man TT, which was a great experience," said the Ducati star.

"Now it's time for Silverstone. We went there for the first time last year, so it's still kind of new and fresh for us. The track layout is the same, but they've changed where we enter the pits, which could make it a little different in some ways.

"It's a track I enjoyed a lot last year because it's big, long and fast. The pavement was a little bumpy in a couple of places, but it was perfect in other parts. I'm looking forward to it.”

Hayden finished third at round two in Jerez and holds sixth in the championship, one place behind team-mate Valentino Rossi.

@won't do it again Cry me a f*kin' river. NH is on that ride because he deserves it, but perhaps you'd like to see more riders like Kallio, Capirossi or Elias on the grid, battling it out for 15th spot. All those guys had their chance on factory machines and what were they able to do? Yeah, exactly my thoughts. But better yet, maybe motogp should only be a 5 rider league because the way retards like you make it seem, only the top 5 deserve to be in motogp.

@Won't do it again He isn't taking up space. If I'm right, he is 6th in the championship (ahead of two other factory riders) and has taken a podium already this season. Nicky Hayden fully deserves to be in MotoGP and is not a 2nd stringer. And why do you say "world champion"? If he's a champion, he's a champion. No sarcastic speech marks needed.
