Qatar MotoGP: Nicky Hayden third but cautiously optimistic

Nicky Hayden refused to get too carried away after he kicked off the new 1000cc MotoGP era by setting the third fastest time in opening practice at the floodlit Losail International Circuit in Qatar tonight. The Kentucky rider set a best time of 1.56.924 to finish 0.450s behind Casey Stoner and he was comfortably fastest Ducati rider, with team-mate Valentino Rossi...

Soft tyre - ChrisSYD

As the info coming from the Eurosport commentary wa non-existant I'm not sure, but I think Spies and Lorenzo also set fast times on the soft tyre, so maybe, maybe not

Still, only the first session and a lot of set up changes to come for all of them yet so much could change. He must be seriously encouraged though.
