There is obviously a lot of love and respect between Furusawa and Rossi, i just hope Masao does the decent thing for all race fans and let's Rossi test the Ducati @ alencia as Ducati have done for Stoner and Honda.
A nice ending to a nice working relationship.

hey Vale, I know! Instead of you being the first ever rider to win on 3 manufacturers let's both retire together and attend Yamaha golf outings and PR events.

Lol... would love to hear Rossi talk about how that conversation went. :rolleyes:

Flossi is really such a weak character that he must have a favorite uncle to stay at a place. Now I wonder who will be his uncle at Ducati. I suspect he will secretly ask Furusawa to help him return to Yamaha should he fail to find that avuncular bloke @ Ducati. Chances of that are slim though, after his unsavory reaction to the possibility of not testing for Ducati.

Rumours said... the decision VR will go to duc was about end of 09, after discussed w/ furusawa.
Of course furusawa is dissappointed.. but what VR should do as a ambassador ?
I like furusawa-san more than jarvis.

Dream team is history,albeit a great one.Furasawa san,
Burgess,Brivio and Rossi...a la.. Byrne,Todt,Brawn and Schumacher.
Look forward to the future. Growing old is a fact of life.Some still think they have a liscence to immortality and eternal youth.
Y'all mortals,accept it !!!
