Indianapolis MotoGP: Hayden, Dovizioso talk inal turn clash

“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.”

Desperate comment to make a comparison to '06. Seriously. No, this was an aggressive move by a rider wanting to impress his hometown fans and potential future teams so that they still know he is an aggressive rider. Clearly not the best move but certainly nothing compared with many others we have seen over the years. Dovi has it correct. It annoyed him but now it is over.
