    I personally have high hopes for Nicki Hayden on the new Honda and wish them well.

    As for Bernie and his F-1 financial problems I am not sure yet how i feel. ( I should have such a problem )
    IMHO he is a snake in the grass, but without him and his minions I wonder what would be the state of F -1 today.
