I seem to recall hearing something like that also... but it's really difficult to understand why a team/manufacturer would not allow a rider to set the bike up as needed as far as control position goes. How could anyone but the rider possibly know what positions are best?

And Hayden in 7th qualifying and only ~1 second behind pole with that hand on that bike, that's really pushing to make it happen. Respect, that guy works hard.
