A very good read indeed. Furusawa is definitely a very likeable guy who is honest and has a passion for what he does.

I also think what he said on the last page about using a carbon chassis only fuels the doubt and debate that Ducati is going down the wrong road. We'll see.

Some interesting things said in that interview. Saying he helps Rossi even at ducati by giving him clues. Also giving clues and advice to Fillipo. Saying Lorenzo has almost no experience developing the bike and at times wanted the best bike changed. Also he said he is sure Rossi will get ducati going but it will take time. I wish this Guy would come over to my garage and tune my 750 for me.

Thoroughly great article.Reading between the lines,Masao will still be available throughout the season to give Yamaha a hand if they run into problems.Good on him.He does not want HRC to win this final 800 season either.
Also good to hear him saying the 1000 class next year will still be ruled by fuel consumption and electronic control.So,definitely not 990 revisited as so many are expecting of the new class.
