Paddock Press: Turco reviews De Puniet´s 2008 season

Paddock Press: Turco reviews De Puniet´s 2008 season

Frenchman´s 2008 campaign as seen by Moto Revue journalist.

Few would say that Randy de Puniet was overly cautious in 2008, given his penchant for pushing the LCR Honda RC212V past its limits in a crash-strewn season. However, Moto Revue´s Michel Turco believes that the Frenchman did just that in the final races of the year, as he reveals in the latest edition of Paddock Press:

`He was too careful in the first few laps of the last races and lost a lot of positions. At the end of the season, he was quite far down in the World Championship and it´s been a bad year for him,´ says Turco.

`He also had a lot of crashes - too many crashes I would say- and after that he lost his confidence.´

Paddock Press takes on a French feel today, with Sylvain Guintoli´s 2008 season also coming under the microscope in the other half of a double-bill.
