Hayden talks Pedrosa.

Since his bleak description of life at Repsol Honda in the Thursday pre-event press conference at Indianapolis, during which he also confirmed that he will leave Honda at the end of this season, Nicky Hayden has faced regular questions from the local media regarding life alongside team-mate Dani Pedrosa.

"You know, everybody makes a big deal about it. We really got no problem, me and him. I mean, sure, we're not team-mates. We don't work together at all. He does his thing, and I do mine," said Nicky. "Now ain't the time to go into that.

"My guys, I'd love to give them a good result before the season's over, because they've never given up on me and worked really hard. They deserve a good result before we finish off. They did a lot for me in my career, and I'm really grateful," he added.

Hayden - set to join Ducati next season - qualified fourth on the grid at Indy, four places in front of Pedrosa.

Come on nicky...grow some balls...tell us about how the spanish mafia at Repsol honda robbed you of your chance to retain your title. Best thing nicky to do is to leave honda, i just can't wait for Pedrobot to lead honda up a technological cul-de-sac for another 2 years. Honda's reputaton has plumeted since rossi left, but i put this more down to the sponsors Repsol political back stabbing in favour of Spanish riders. I tell you something, i wouldn't like to be on Honda 2009 bike for next year, with short **** doing the development, Pedrobot will probably remove the front brakes as he doesn't know how to use them, that should save a bit of unsprung weight!
