De Puniet satisfied behind the ‘aliens’

De Puniet satisfied behind the ‘aliens’

Frenchman places fifth in first Barcelona practice session.

Randy de Puniet was content with his Friday practice session in Barcelona, only just behind the ‘untouchable’ top quartet with a 1’43.871 lap. He tried a variety of options in the afternoon run.

Randy de Puniet –5th

“I am very satisfied about the first run out. From the beginning I was up there making my life easier. I could concentrate on the bike set up trying different front rims sizes and the harder compounds from Bridgestone: it seems to be better for me. The engine is working well and lapped consistently fast throughout the whole session. We are behind the “aliens” and this makes us very pleased but I believe we could adjust the engine brake and the traction control to improve our pace for tomorrow’s sessions.”
