Hayden feels aerodynamic benefits

Hayden feels aerodynamic benefits

A new fairing on the American’s Ducati Desmosedici GP10 proved a success as he felt a vast improvement and qualified in fourth position for the Gran Premio A-Style de Aragón.

Ducati Team rider Nicky Hayden benefitted from the switch to a different aerodynamics package – featuring a larger front fairing – at Aragón on Saturday as the American qualified in fourth position for Sunday’s race. With the circuit featuring the longest straight on the MotoGP calendar Hayden is hoping that the modification will pay dividends tomorrow.

Nicky Hayden – 4th

“Overall it's been a positive day. We have had two dry sessions and I had fun – we constantly made the bike a little bit faster and even though it would have been nice to be on the front row, we're only a tenth off, the team is doing a great job and we have to be satisfied. For Casey and I to be in the top four shows that the bike is working really well around here. On the Ducati simulator the best lap I had was a 1'49.1 and the pole time was a 1'48.9 so that's impressive, somebody back in Bologna is doing their homework! They're doing a great job and tomorrow it's my turn to try and bring something home for the team.”
