As much as I hate saying it... head to head, Rossi domainates Hayden. I'm not saying doesn't have skill... cause he does, and it's only going to get better over the years to come. But Rossi isn't human. PERIOD...

I hope Nicky can hold things together for the next few races... him winning would put MotoGP into an uproar!!! And just make the 2007 season that much more interesting!!!

that I agree with. Hayden is the second best rider in MotoGP hands down. you're right, this isn't just luck for Hayden because he's good everywhere (wet, dry, mostly all the tracks). Without his massive skill level he wouldnt be where he is right now..., hopefully one day I will be able to ride at 1/10 of his level...but I'm not holding my breath.

Hopefully I'm not contradicting what I just said here, but the bad thing is that if Hayden wins, yes it will cause an uproar in MotoGP because a new champ is crowned for the first time in 5 years, or whatever. Yet, Hayden won't QUITE get all the respect that comes along with it. If he wins, people will still say, "If Rossi hadn't had so many problems Hayden wouldn't have won " But if Rossi wins people will still say, "See, Hayden isn't as good as Rossi. Rossi is not human :notworthy." And truthfully, I am one of those people, even though Hayden will have earned the championship, I just can't overlook the fact that Rossi's loss in points was completely out of his control. And if the tables were turned and that situation happened the other way around, I would think the same thing about Hayden's misfortune....I just probably wouldn't say it out loud. :laughing6

To add to everything, what kind of uproar would it cause IF the rumors are true and Hayden goes to Yamaha with Rossi next year.

Well, they were teammates once before, but there is definitely some (more) friction between 'em.

Yamaha wanted hayden before he signed with Honda in MotoGP.. In fact.. It was reported that Hayden did sign, or at least signed a LOI with Yamaha So when he ended up with Honda, Yamaha was pretty miffed. RRW says Hayden wants to stay with Honda, but that Ducati and Yamaha are courtin' him. Probably other teams as well. There are no guarantee's that Honda will have the best bike next year. I wouldn't bet against it, but the rule change opens the game up a bit.


Link to blurb about Hayden/Yamaha setteling their differences out of court. (2k3)
