“We know we have a difficult situation right now,” he said. “We've got a lot of work to do, me and Dovi both, to get beat so bad here. At this track, I've been on the podium a lot. He was on the podium here last year. It is really frustrating. At the moment, we're going around in circles. It's going to be a long end of the season, but we've got to try to come up with something to reduce the gap to the front.”
Hayden is being linked to the new breed of privateer MotoGP machines from Honda and Yamaha for 2014, but isn't ruling out World Superbike.
Asked if he will be back at Indy next year, the former MotoGP champion replied: “It's looking likely. I've got a couple of options here if I want to stay. It's no secret I'm also entertaining the possible switch to World Superbike, and the challenge would be to be the first guy to ever win both championships.
“At the moment, I would say it's about 50-50. We'll see.”
