pretty much that yamaha is very interested and so is ducati - he's still holding off coz he still wants to stay with honda but he's not liking how he's being treated coz he's the test dummy and he really wants to concentrate on the championship... so don't be surprised if he's rossi's teammate again LOL

Oh well that I knew already. That's been going around for a while. But he HAS to be the test dummy because he's their most senior rider (other than Makoto Tamada).

Melandri, Stoner and Pedrosa have less time on the RC211V. Melandri was offered to be the test mule and he refused.

it was just pretty interesting to me coz one of the commentators asked nicky about signing with yamaha and he said nothing is set in stone yet but the way he's being the test dummy is making him lean more towards other bikes vs staying with honda

I dont want everyone to think im a Hyaden Hater.

I REALLY do want him to win it...but man,he needs race wins,not podiums.

Lets hope he can do it...

What i will and can say is i have no right to judge or criticize anyone.

And thats what i felt i have done...

I'm in no place to be an arm chair racer or jury.

So i will apologise for that.

Hayden has a dream carrer and has more talent than i can dream of having.So im in no shape to judge anyone.

He's complaining of lack of grip on race tires. Watching his times, he's not that consistently fast on race set up either. If Rossi doesn't pull away from the start it will be between Rossi and the red bike and maybe Edwards. Hope I'm wrong and the Repsol boys can work some magic.

If he's complaining about grip on race tires then he probably has a good beef. He's got time to figure out what tires to use.

I wouldn't count Hayden out of this one so fast. This is one of his favorite tracks.
