Bourguignon weighs up a good start to 2010

Bourguignon weighs up a good start to 2010

Chief mechanic for Randy de Puniet with the LCR Honda team, Frenchman Christophe Bourguignon talks to motogp.com about the season so far in this video interview.

Randy de Puniet’s rapid adaptation to the 2010 RC212V has seen the LCR Honda rider make a strong start to the season. The Frenchman qualified in fourth place on the grid for the season opener in Qatar and placed sixth in the race, before taking another top-six qualification and scoring further Championship points at Jerez with ninth place in the race.

In this motogp.com video De Puniet’s chief mechanic Christophe Bourguignon discusses the progress made, and also explains how the new rules of six engines per rider for the whole campaign have shaped the way the team are continually approaching the 2010 season.

“It seems like we’ve been able to find a correct set-up for Randy, and after the Qatar test he seemed to feel more comfortable than the other Honda riders,” explained Bourguignon. “As a racer you always want to improve more. With these new engine rules we are kind of limited in that specific area, so we will concentrate over the next few races on further improving the rideability out of the corner with engine mapping.”

“Overall we are quite pleased with the Honda bike at the moment,” he said, and you can view the full interview with Bourguignon in the attached motogp.com video.
