I wouldn't say always smiling, this past season was as close as I ever saw him look frustrated. But he tried to put a good face on it, even then.

Compare that with the Italian superstar, and Nicky came away with a lot of respect for his work.
Do we want to discuss the number of times his previous team mate threw the team under the bus?

I think that, compared to both 27 and 46, folks came away with the impression that 69 was THE class act of the paddock.

As his riding career comes to a close in the next few years, I really hope that Ducati recognize his value as an ambassador for the marque, and employ him accordingly.
