Confident De Puniet ends Friday in Sachsenring top ten

Confident De Puniet ends Friday in Sachsenring top ten

On the opening day of the Alice Motorrad Grand Prix Deutschland LCR Honda´s Randy De Puniet was the tenth fastest rider at the Sachsenring.

After lapping the Sachsenring in the tenth fastest time of MotoGP free practice on Friday on his satellite Honda RC212V, Randy de Puniet gave his reaction at the end of the day.

Randy de Puniet - tenth

`It was a `normal´ first day of practice. Basically we did not find any particular problem with the bike set-up and I was able to improve my lap time in the afternoon session. We still have to fix some small things to close the gap with the first group even though my best lap time is less than fourth tenths off Valentino Rossi's fourth best lap time. However it´s not so easy to improve the lap time because this track is very tight, but I feel confident for tomorrow. We tried some good rear tyres and I was able to run consistent laps in the 1´23 bracket. At the moment the race pace is quite good for us.´
