Randy de Puniet - seventh

`The weather is very bad and it´s not easy to ride in these conditions. This morning, in the wet, I decided to avoid any unnecessary risk as my wrist still aches a lot so we did only six laps. Then in the afternoon we faced some rear grip issues but we could not really fix them. However, after some suspension adjustments, my pace in the wet started to be more consistent. I am really pleased with the overall package but I am worried about my wrist because it´s very hard for me to ride in these conditions.´
