— Nicky Hayden on his relationship with Valentino Rossi (via rossi-hayden-469)
"Yeah, we’ve had no problems. You know we were team-mates at Honda and everything was fine there. But that was a long time ago. It’s been a shame we haven’t got the results we both would have like these last few years, but we have a good relationship. He has nine titles. Say what you want, but those nine titles speak for themselves. You have to respect that."
