Ducati just loves Nicky .
Ducati CEO Gabriele Del Torchio raised eyebrows last week when he mildly called out American Nick Hayden at the Wrooom launch event in the Dolomites, saying "We are delighted with the confirmation of Nicky, but we expect him to do better than last year."
He was ahead of Rossi until the crash and injury at Indy.... Nicky needs to grow a set and not be so laid back. If they could build such a great bike Rossi would still be there. If not for Stoner they would still be winless..........
