De Puniet rues lack of dry time and Lorenzo baulking

De Puniet rues lack of dry time and Lorenzo baulking

Starting from twelfth on the grid for the second consecutive race, LCR Honda´s Randy de Puniet will be looking for solutions on Sunday.

Randy de Puniet had been aiming for dry weather improvement in qualifying at Mugello, but the Frenchman was left disappointed by a lowly twelfth place and angry at being baulked by Jorge Lorenzo on his fast lap.

Randy de Puniet – 12th

`I knew that it would not have been easy to find the right set-up on dry with two practice sessions only and we still have to adjust some points especially in the rear of the bike. We tried different tyres and settings but I am not very happy. I could be faster in the last part of the qualifying session but Lorenzo came out in front of me and l lost my last fast lap. I could shave some tenths and start from the third row. Anyway we must work on the bike set-up in tomorrow's warm up session to improve the rear grip.´
