Dani better make it up to him... That's all I gotta say. He better freaking make it up to him. The man is chasing the title now. Dude takes him out (whether advertantly or inadvertantly). He better be the best freaking team player ever in Valencia. You could see Nicky was biting his tongue, trying to say a little as he could emotionally. As the interview went on, I think this was the first time I've seen Nicky express disappointment with Honda. All I kept thinking was, thank God he already signed with them for another two years...

yeah, i'm alittle surprised at honda too. they need a championship win from a reputation stand point. I mean, they do win the manufacturer's championship every year but no one really remembers that; people remember who wins the championship and what bike they were on

The most emotional part was when he did express his dissapointment with Honda when he said he has been battleling clutch problems since week 1.

Nicky didn't crash out all year long and for him to get zero points now was the worst possible senario. All he had to do was finish 8th or better to keep the lead or share the lead. And then Valencia would have been exciting.

All year long his worst perfromance was 9th place...I want to take Dani's little action figure sized ass and beat him against the wall.

He better make up for it at Valencia.

I find it hard to believe Rossi will do anything other than finish top 3... probably win. He's unstopabble right now. Fortunately, the M1 and the tires seem to be somewhat unreliable. Mechanical failure maybe? Wouldn't be a sweet as Nicky winning with Pedrosa second. That really would be the ultimate finish.

I think Estoril was a sign of this VERY determined Hayden. I mean, he consistently flew fastest over the weekend. He was top 3 in all FPs, QP and I think even in the warm-ups. He didn't get a great start, but stayed in the top 4-5. And... Estoril is NOT his favorite track. He CAN get it done and I think barring another incident like this, Valencia will be an awesome race! GO NICKY!

nicky should be racing the next race like a bat out of hell. he has nothing to lose and everything to gain. just hope pedrosa can make up for what he did and make it a honda 1-2 finish

just thinkin...... now if nicky wins the next race and rossi comes in third, that means hayden would win by one point. now think about the australian GP when hayden passed stoner for 5th on the last lap. now think how important that one point would be if it works out this way. WOW!!!

In that case what about the opposite...like the last turn of the last lap at CZE..Nakano passed Hayden (due to his bike issues). As a matter a fact I believe he was passed by Hopkins within the last lap or 2 as well. All season long every point counts.

You will see a different Hayden in this last race....he will race more aggressive than ever...he has nothing to lose and everything to gain.

...or if Rossi was not given an extra 10 points (basically) by not being penalized for passing under yellow in Phillip Island.

Hayden didn't knock him at all..... thats really class.

He said it a couple of times though "Honda should have had a plan/team orders..." etc.
HRC screwed up more than Pedrosa. They should've had orders in place to prevent the top two honda riders from mixing it up. There's no way Edwards would've passed Rossi.... HRC gets the blame in my book.
