I am just fed up with Honda and Pedrosa. I think that its complete bullshit how Nicky has been treated by Honda and how Pedrosa is their Golden child. I will be the first to admit that Pedrosa has put up the results but both riders in the team should be put on equal footing. This crap about Pedrosa being able to see Nicky's data and Honda making special frames and engines for his midget legs is bullshit.

I would like to hear your thoughts on the matter.

At this point in the grand scheme of things, I believe Hayden should be examining other options. Honda has clearly shown that Hayden is not in their plans. Hayden's opinion is not given any development concern.

He is still only the first of the customers. (yeah I know he is on the HRC factory bike) but really - he just has to ride whatever HRC/Pedrosa decides to hand down to him. First of the guys to receive any upgrades.

Dude go ride the Ducati....

Dont get me wrong, I am a Ducati owner but that Duc sucks shit through a rag. Stoner's bike is the only competitive Duc on the grid. Elias and Melandri are both great riders that can and have won races on other equipment and those Ducs are not helping them at all. Hayden's career in GP would be over if he signed with Ducati I am affraid. Taking Colin's seat on the M1 would be a good option if Colin decides to go else where next year.

Hayden on the M1 would be interesting but I don't think the bike suits his style..... although WSBK champion Toseland seems to be doing fairly well on the bike.

I just think that the Ducati's power would allow Hayden to ride the 800 similar to the way he rode the 990.

Ducati......
I don't know what is going on with Ducati. I suspect that Yamaha and Honda have made significant jumps in develpment over last year and the gap has been closed.

I also seriously suspect that Elias and Guintoli have been told to not finish ahead of Melandri.
(dun dun duuuuunnn conspiracy [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/huh.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/sad.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/unsure.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wacko.gif[/img] [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/blowup.gif[/img] ) I am stuck on Barros' comments from his finishing ahead of Stoner last year.

I think that there may be a bit more to the paddock pecking order than is spoken.

hmm.. The thought just occured to me.... so I will just ask the question.....
Why is Tady "testing" the Pneumatic engine at Mugello?

Supposedly to assess whether or not the engine will last....

Ahh how about giving Nicky the Pneumatic to gather a little data...
Oh yeah.. Pedrosa doesn't want Nicky to have anything that may put Nicky in a position to go as fast or faster than he...

Yes, it's all a grand fucking conspiracy. Little mean ol' Dani is so spiteful he'd do anything to sabotage Hayden. Fuck, he even planned Estoril 06 with Puig I bet.

Maybe.... just maybe, Honda look where the results are coming from and decide to prioritise? Rather than focus upon a rider who was very quick on a 990 and can't for the life of him adapt to an 800, they focus upon the one who did very well.

Oh, shit.

Fuck Honda.

What about the shafting Nicky is giving Honda? He did the job on the 990 so now he thinks hes too good for the 800, he says everything on the bike is wrong but wont change his style and affors irrelevant development feedback. Hes just dragging HRC down from the inside with shit results and its not fair on everyone else in the team. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/rolleyes.gif[/img]

Good grief! There's two years' worth of posts about this. If you want to know every man and his dog's opinion, run a search on here and let the old shit lie.
