Ducati's Nicky Hayden has admitted he could be "in the doghouse" for ruining the launch of his team's new bike by posting pictures of it on his own website - news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/mot...
But other than leaving the team's factory with a red face, Hayden says he came away feeling confident and happy with his 2010 MotoGP bike.
His team-mate Casey Stoner says he is ready for the new season and claims he can see a chink in the armour of world champion Valentino Rossi.
"Sometimes Valentino can be very quick on the weekend but then struggles in a race," said Stoner.
