De Puniet targets top six finish

De Puniet targets top six finish

Frenchman seventh on grid at Losail.

Starting from seventh on the grid, Randy de Puniet is ready for a top six finish in the first race of the 2009 season. The Frenchman cited an improvement in feeling with his ‘qualifying’ soft rubber for his 1’56.538 lap on Friday night.

Randy de Puniet -7th

“I am happy because we made a good job during the three sessions and improved a lot my feeling on qualifiers. We made some adjustments on the setting and now the bike turns better and I feel more aggressive in the corner entry. I was expecting this since a long time so I feel quite satisfied. The winter was hard as we missed some track time so we are very pleased with this third row. I am getting used to Bridgestone tyres and feel more comfortable now. I aim to finish the race in the top six”.
