Notable is that Puig only won one grand prix and never finished better than 5th in the standings in his 500cc grand prix career. Why is that notable? If you're a winner you're probably not a whiner.
Puig's career was cut short by a very nasty accident just as he was peaking so I'm not sure how fair that is.
At that point he could run with just about anyone.....
You might remember the incident, he sought of fell off the side of the bike through a very fast section.
took a long time to heal and was never the same again.
He's still a though if he really did say those things.
Nicky is the consumate proffessional IMO, as he is seldom "publicly" critical of either his machine/tyres, his employers or his opponents.
And he more than most has had good reason to be.

I agree. If I was in his boat when he was in contention for the championship I would have had a lot of nasty things to say about the way HRC/Repsol treated me.

Hayden is one of the hardest working riders Honda has ever worked with. Its amazing that a rider can ride their whole life and get this far still not knowing how to set up a bike, lol! I found this article hilarious.

This should make for some interesting racing next year when they get to battle it out. I think Hayden will be awesome on the Duc, and Pedrossa is a really good rider. He doesn't seem to dirty to the other riders and he seemed really happy for Val when he clinched the title this year.

I did see how Pedrossa can come off as , though. When I went to GP, Hayden was snapping pics with us and signing everything and Pedrossa wouldn't even stop for anyone. Maybe he was scared of all the big Americans and didn't want us to have to kneel down and get his signature.
