Nicky Hayden, Ducati Desmosedici GP9
Casey Stoners latest team mate tackles the Melbourne hairpin during Saturdays first practise.
Nicky moved to Ducati from Repsol Honda and, like several before him, is still struggling to get to grips with the bike. Casey Stoner seems to be the only person capable of taming the machine.
Nicky, like his team mate, made the weird decision to go for wet tyres in the race when everyone else was on slicks and were way off the pace.
