Horiike sees number 1 as just reward

HRC Executive Director Satoru Horiike is understandably in good spirits after Nicky Hayden's title triumph in Valencia, the icing on the cake in a season which has seen the Japanese factory take the individual, team and constructors titles in the premier class, along with all three rookie of the year awards.

"Honda have missed out on the MotoGP title for the past two years, so this season we were determined not to make it three. The fruits of our labours will be seeing the number 1 on the front of Nicky's bike next season, a just reward for all our efforts and work with which we are most satisfied," commented Horiike.
