Time on De Puniet's side at Laguna Seca

Time on De Puniet's side at Laguna Seca

Frenchman will look to improve early issues on Saturday morning.

Randy de Puniet was unworried by what he regarded as a poor start to the Red Bull U.S. Grand Prix weekend, placing eleventh in the opening Free Practice session. The LCR Honda man has two more hour-long sessions in which to work on his setup.

Randy de Puniet – 11th

“In the beginning I faced some front end problems but we quickly fixed them with the guys. After that I came in on a harder rear tyre but struggled with the rear grip on the maximum angle in the corners so I could not go faster. Unfortunately my machine no. two had some brake problems so we could not really use that bike to adjust our problems. However we knew our issues and we’ll try to fix them for tomorrow’s qualifying. Obviously I expected a better base set up but we still have track time to improve the grip."
