Hayden looks over first British Grand Prix session

Hayden looks over first British Grand Prix session

Ducati Marlboro man tenth in Donington Friday practice session.

Nicky Hayden gained precious little from a Friday practice run in mixed conditions. Tenth at Donington Park, the American hopes for drier weather on Saturday in order to set up his Ducati Desmosedici GP9 and continue his positive recent form at the British Grand Prix.

Nicky Hayden -10th

“Typical British weather! It’s been like this since I got here at the start of the week. We started out in the wet and I didn’t have much feel to begin with but we made a couple of changes and got better and better as the session went on. On the last lap I went straight in the last corner and ran wide so I made a little error there. Basically the bike didn’t feel too good in the heavy rain but much better in the damp. The weather looks better for tomorrow so we hope that’s the case because it was difficult to draw any conclusions today.”
