De Puniet says FP1 fifteenth "no big drama"

De Puniet says FP1 fifteenth 'no big drama'

Frenchman comments on 'strange' Donington Park practice.

Struggling to gain meaningful data from the mixed conditions in Donington Park on Friday, Randy de Puniet was not too worried about fifteenth place on Friday afternoon. The LCR Honda rider expects to pick up the pace on a dry track on Saturday.

Randy de Puniet –15th

“It has been a strange first session: fully wet in the beginning but, in the last 14 minutes, the surface started to dry up and the grip was very bad. However I had a positive first run out and was fifth in the wet before coming into the garage. After that we came out with the same bike on same tyres but I could not really improve my pace. Our bike was not properly set up for these conditions and the suspension setting was too soft. It’s not a big drama: we will fix the suspension set up and the engine management for tomorrow’s sessions."
