De Puniet down after 14th place finish at home

De Puniet down after 14th place finish at home

Finishing outside the top ten left Randy de Puniet disappointed in France.

After his good start to the season LCR Honda rider Randy de Puniet was hoping for another strong result in front of the home fans at the Grand Prix de France – but alas it was not to be for the 28 year-old Frenchman.

Randy de Puniet – 14th

“I am very disappointed for the team and for the fans because I had a very bad race today. At the beginning, on rain tyres, I was not comfortable with the front end. Then I switched to the bike with slick tyres but I made a mistake on turn four and lost some time. After that I struggled I lot and couldn’t race as I expected. We started the weekend with the right package and I hoped for a better result. However I got two points and I am tenth in the standings. Now I have to forget this bad weekend and focus on Mugello.”
