WBSK Misano, San Marino: Hayden: Nice to be top, pace not so good

'This morning things went quite smoothly but this afternoon we had a few issues with the electronics' - Nicky Hayden.
Nicky Hayden was pleased to end day one at Misano on provisional pole, but the Honda World Superbike rider was less than satisfied with his overall pace.

Hayden encountered some issues with the electronics in FP2 and is keen to focus on improving his rhythm on Saturday.

“It was nice to be fastest today! In the end, we put a new tyre on and I was able to drop my time quite a bit,” said the American rider.

“The track was definitely dirtier than in testing and there was not as much rubber down, so it took a little bit of time for the grip to improve. I have to admit that I'm not particularly happy with my pace; this morning things went quite smoothly but this afternoon we had a few issues with the electronics: they were showing me the wrong lap-times and split-times.

“In the end we were able to recover and put together a good lap and that's good, but we need to work on our rhythm a bit more tomorrow morning.”

Hayden's fastest lap of 1m 35.263s put him 0.122s clear of Althea BMW's Marcus Reiterberger in second.
