Dry track allows De Puniet comfort in qualifying

Dry track allows De Puniet comfort in qualifying

Randy de Puniet feels that a completely dry IMS circuit allows him to ride with ease.

Randy de Puniet - Sixth

`I am very happy about my result because it's not easy to find the right set-up on a new track. Yesterday we had both sessions in the wet and this morning the track surface was still damp. For the final qualifying the track was completely dry but I could easily ride as I would like. When I came out on race tyres my pace was consistently fast and I made a good job on qualifiers as well. This is a very positive result if we consider that I miss some power in the straight but thanks to the adjustments we did this morning I will start from the second row once again. Want to thank my crew and Michelin for their efforts. Starting from the 6th position will help me in case of heavy rain but I do not feel worried about the bad weather because we have got a good pace in both conditions´
