Gotta say, I feel sorry for Nicky, but worse for Scott. Nicky has been dealt blow after blow since being dumped by Honda. Even after his 2006 championship win (lucky or not), in 2007 Honda completely ignored him and concentrated on the "new" boy Pedrosa. Ducati? Nowt more to be said. I bet Nicky was so happy to get a Honda ride in 2014, but was immediately gutted when he rode it! But Scott is new to MotoGP. He is hungry to race in the top class and wants to make an impression. He must of realised by now it ain't gonna happen on Honda's production P.O.S. Scott and Nicky must surely look at that "open" 2014 Yamaha and say "Come on Honda, give us MM and DP's 2013 bike!!!" Of course, Honda will ignore them.

scott redding has got to be thinking "what the f*&k have i done????" honda are being completely obstinate about the fact their production racer is 2 secondsish slower than the yamaha and blaming it on the teams not being used to the bike!!! Honda are blaming keeping the costs down but I'm sure if you asked the teams to pay £100,000 per tenth of a second they would rip your arm off!!
