Confidence grows for De Puniet with second row

Confidence grows for De Puniet with second row

The LCR Honda rider finished the qualifying session at Aragón in sixth position.

Randy de Puniet confirmed his positive feeling on the Motorland Aragón circuit and found a good rhythm in the qualifying session on Saturday, posting the sixth fastest time (1’49.952) on his LCR Honda RC212V machine.

Randy de Puniet – 6th

“After yesterday’s engine brake issues the guys worked in the right way to improve the bike and this second row makes me very confident for tomorrow’s race. We just lacked some rear grip in this morning’s session but we took another step forward in the afternoon. I finally enjoyed riding my bike after the bad injury I suffered in Germany. The last month has been very tough for me but now I feel in good shape again and more consistent on this track compared to Misano. Of course I am not at 100% yet and I know that this race will be close but I feel more comfortable now and it seems I do not need to push hard to be fast, which is very positive.”
