De Puniet ok despite bee sting to face

De Puniet ok despite bee sting to face

Seventh on the timesheet was a decent way to begin the weekend in Spain for LCR Honda’s Randy de Puniet, despite some unwelcome attentions from a bee during FP1.

French Randy de Puniet summarises the first day of action at the Gran Premio bwin.com de España from an LCR Honda perspective, after clocking the seventh best time at the Jerez de la Frontera circuit in MotoGP free practice 1.

Randy de Puniet – 7th

“One bike was set up as we tested it during pre season official test and the other one was set up as we raced in Japan but we fixed several issues. I compared both bikes and my pace was pretty fast from the beginning of the session. I was happy with my package and at the end I lapped on a hard set of tyres which will be our race tyre if the track temperature remains the same. Unfortunately on the last lap a bee stung just below my left eye, but I am OK. Our to-do list for tomorrow includes engine mapping and chassis set up, but basically we have already had a very positive start.”
