WOW Did you see Lorenzo face oh starting moaning his bike well when Yamaha dominated in the last three D.Pederosa never said anything about Yamaha, he was just complaining brakes problems and sometimes his injury, but now Lorenzo complaining and moaning that Honda are very fast and he has repeated his demands for Yamaha to improve its factory M1. STOP moaning and develop the bike, that is your weak point.

Furusawa san has not retired yet. He is still operating in a consultative role at least for 2011 according to a lot of web press and articles directly with him. He is supposedly guiding some development ideas for the 1000cc machine and a few small things for the current machine.
If you read around, rider input is a normal element of development plans and although Lorenzo has (very) recently been quoted as saying he can develope a bike, Furusawa has been quoted as indicating that Lorenzo is still young and not experienced with this aspect of contracted riders while Rossi was extraordinary (forget the exact phrase). Bit of a laugh now though as the Rossi crew struggle with the machinery and Lorenzo's crew cannot make the headway they want. Assume Rossi did not play all his cards for Yamaha last year with the 2011 M1 development, and if so, just as JB is starting to look a litle too big mouthed, Lorenzo and crew cannot have too many solutions on hand for the M1.
Stoner and co look quit

There is not much JL can develop when the weak point of the Yamaha is the engine power/acceleration. That is up to Yamaha but they are hardly going to revolutionise their engine design with 6 months of 800cc left to run. He will just have to accept that the Hondas are going to beat him at HP tracks and try to return the favour on tracks where he can take advantage of having a slightly better chassis.
