The youngest Hayden brother hasn't quite managed to light the SBK paddock on fire yet. Is he that slow? Is the Pedercini Kawasaki that slow? If he keeps going at the rate he is I don't really see him keeping that ride, or even being interested in keeping it. He did win a 600 championship in the states so he must have some speed and he can't enjoy circling at the very back of the pack.
If nothing else it can't raise his stock any. Who would you rather hire, a former factory rider and champion from the AMA or a privateer who never scored a point in SBK?
