De Puniet out of luck on Czech date

De Puniet out of luck on Czech date

After Saturday´s good qualifying session result in the wet, LCR Honda racer Randy De Puniet ended up out of the points at Brno.

Randy de Puniet made a good start from seventh place on the grid in the 22-lap race at Brno on Sunday but crashed out on lap six. Luckily the Frenchman aboard the Michelin-shod LCR Honda RC212V escaped unhurt from the incident and rejoined the twelfth round of the season, ending up sixteenth.

Randy de Puniet - sixteenth

`Honestly I am very angry. I made a good start but could not race as I would like because struggled a lot for front-end feel. Many riders passed me in the corner entry and in the first laps I lost the front a few times. So I decided to slow down but the feeling with the front was very bad. When I tried to pass Pedrosa in the chicane I crashed out in the gravel but rejoined the race. I suffered the same crash of Friday afternoon and, although my crew worked hard to find a solution, we did not solve the problem with the front tyre. I want to forget this bad weekend.´
