De Puniet finishes Thursday TT practice seventh

LCR Honda MotoGP rider Randy De Puniet was in good form on Thursday at Assen, finishing seventh fastest on a very competitive day of free practice.

The LCR Honda team squad completed a productive day at the 4.5km Assen circuit on Thursday, finding a good set-up for Randy de Puniet´s Michelin-shod satellite Honda RC212V.

Randy de Puniet - seventh

`I am very happy today because we did a good job in both sessions and we gained one second in the afternoon one. The bike is now easier for me and we found the right direction for this challenging track. We made some adjustments to the bike trying to improve the stability on braking and turning into the corners on the brakes which was a problem this morning. With the adjustments on the front fork setting we shaved some tenths off and the rear tyres we tested were all of a good grip level. Basically it was a very positive first day of practices for us and I want to the thank my team for their efforts.´
