Re: Hayden for injured Pedrosa

I agree he almost certainly will not be a factor - but it sure will be nice to see him out there. And on any given day crazy things have happened.

Re: Hayden for injured Pedrosa

I'd rather see Doohan back on a Repsol factory ride. If nothing more than a warm-up lap!

Re: Hayden for injured Pedrosa

From crash.net

Former MotoGP world champion Nicky Hayden will replace the injured Dani Pedrosa in the Repsol Honda team at Phillip Island.

Pedrosa is recovering after sustaining a broken collarbone in a huge high-side during practice for the Japanese Grand Prix at Motegi.

Honda World Superbike rider Hayden, who filled in for Jack Miller at Aragon in the Marc VDS team, says he is delighted to have the chance to return to 'my old dream team'.

Hayden began his MotoGP career at Repsol Honda in 2003, going on to claim three wins, 25 podiums and the 2006 world title during six seasons at the squad. He is also something of a specialist at Phillip Island with three podiums, two poles and a fastest lap.

“First of all my best wishes to Dani, I'm sure he will come back stronger than ever like he always does,” Hayden said. “For me it's crazy hard work but it's a chance, ten-years after winning my World title, to get back to my old dream team!

“Doing a weekend in Phillip Island on a factory Honda, it's pretty emotional for me to even think about it and I'm very grateful for this opportunity and the trust that Honda gives me.

"I want also to thank my current team for allowing me to go and do this and the sponsors.

“Everybody worked a lot on every detail to make it possible for me, so now I'm excited to get on a plane, get down to Phillip Island and hopefully I can do a good job for the team,” he added.

“Regarding Phillip Island there are two things to always consider, the weather and the tyres, but it's a track I love and I can't wait to ride the bike there. Let's get started on Friday morning and go forward.”

HRC test rider and former 250cc world champion Hiroshi Aoyama replaced Pedrosa for the remainder of the Motegi weekend, qualifying last and finishing 15th in the race.

Hayden, fifth overall with one win so far in his rookie WorldSBK season, finished 15th on the satellite Marc VDS bike at Aragon.



Hayden is a professional and a great former champion. If he takes a top 10 finish, it will be awesome.
