Sometimes hard work and loyalty isn't enough for a job. Honda ditched Nick for a guy that simply performed equal to him in most cases on the Honda. Ducati hired Nick because Ducati NA pressured Italy to place a "team player" on the bike. Although Nick never came to terms with the 800 he never gave up and never talked the bike or team down. He looked for a way to make the bike work for him. Vale has continuously talked down the bike and he thinks the engineers have run out of ideas, but Nick keeps saying they are inching their way forward. Team player. I would be a bit sad to see Nick get booted from the Factory team, BUT his time in GP means he won't get another Factory seat at his age. If Nick is offered the Corse team like the rumors state, it would make since that he and Checa run the Panigale and he shoot for a WSBK title or two before he comes back to the US to finish his career with a grand slam win on the mile dirt track.
