Repsol Honda's Nicky Hayden has finally stated he won't be at Honda for the 2009 MotoGP Championship and managed to confirm he will be with Ducati without actually saying it.

Speaking at the Indy MotoGP pre-race conference, Hayden said: "It's no secret; everybody knows where my next stop is going to be. But officially we're waiting to do it the right way until the releases come out because there's teams and stuff.

"I'm looking forward to it. I know it's going to be a big change for me, and hopefully the announcement will be coming soon. But still, there's five races to go this season. That's a lot of racing.


"I have had a long history with Honda. Things here lately have, you know, kind of turned ugly with everything going on, all the drama. But still, we've had a lot of good races together, won championships in the AMA, and obviously the World Championship was the big one.

"Sure, every day wasn't just a big holiday but we had some good days, and I'm really grateful for the opportunity they gave me. But I think it's, you know, it's time to move on, try something different. But we'll worry about that later and for now just focus on this weekend and try to go out in a good way together."
