De Puniet feeling comfortable in San Marino

De Puniet feeling comfortable in San Marino

LCR Honda´s Randy de Puniet was all-smiles after clocking the fifth fastest time in practice at Misano.

Having gone round fifth quickest at the Misano circuit on Friday, and having made a handy save of his bike in the second practice session, Randy de Puniet was pleased with events on the Rimini coast.

Randy de Puniet - Fifth

`This is a positive opening day for me and the Team. I like this track and when I came out this morning we started to work on tyres as the asphalt temperature was high but honestly we did not find the best choice on these conditions. Then, for the afternoon´s session, we made some adjustments on engine brake, traction control and tyres getting a good overall package. After that I felt more comfortable on the bike and could run as I would like. Everybody in the Team did a good job and at the end I gained the 5th position. Probably I could improve my lap time but I feel quite satisfied now and hope to continue like this.´
