De Puniet just misses out on front row

Randy de Puniet was delighted with his qualifying result at the Australian Grand Prix on Saturday having earned himself a fourth place slot on the grid for Sunday´s race.

LCR Honda´s Randy de Puniet gives his reaction to equalling his best 2008 qualifying result on Saturday, with fourth place at Phillip Island in the afternoon sunshine.

Randy de Puniet - fourth

`I am very happy about the result and the job we did to prepare for tomorrow´s race. We tested different rear race tyres with good results but we still have to make our choice for the race. However my pace was consistently fast and we have got the potential to finish in the top eight. I feel satisfied about my performance on Q-tyres and missed the front row by one tenth only. Anyway, this fourth place is a very positive result for me and the crew.´
