De Puniet wants top eight after disappointing qualifying

De Puniet wants top eight after disappointing qualifying

Frenchman looks to come back through the field at Donington Park.

Starting from tenth on the grid at Donington Park, Randy de Puniet wants a top eight finish in Sunday's British Grand Prix. The LCR Honda rider had a tough time on the last section of the Midlands circuit, but is optimistic about race day.

Randy de Puniet -10th

“Well … it hasn’t been an easy day for me and I always struggle to set my pace on this track especially in the last two corners. Since the beginning of this week end we had some issues to understand why we could not keep the pace of the front group. We have been focused in the last part of the track because that’s where it seems we lost too much time. We tried to improve the machine between the two sessions and I did my best to suit my riding stile to these corners for winning some tenths. Honestly we expected a third row start but I am still hoping for a top eight end”.
