De Puniet eighth fastest on day one of LCR’s home GP

De Puniet eighth fastest on day one of LCR’s home GP

The Gran Premio d’Italia Alice commenced with LCR Honda’s Randy de Puniet in eighth position on the Friday timesheet.

Randy de Puniet was in good form on Friday, finishing eighth on a very hot opening day at Mugello, the home track for his team and a circuit where the Frenchman says his riding style goes well.

Randy de Puniet – 8th

“It was quite a good start to the weekend. This track has got a different lay out compared to Le Mans and it suits my riding style better. After the first run we made some adjustments to the suspension trying different tyres and my pace is pretty fast compared to last year on this track. I think we are moving in the right direction as I made my lap alone and it’s very close to the top five. Basically the overall package is right but we have more adjustments to test tomorrow trying to improve the rear feeling. I could go faster and I like this track very much. It’s very hot now and we have to make a double effort to produce a strong performance.”
