De Puniet: “The bike is working like it should”

Randy De Puniet finished the first day of the Gran Premio de Aragón in sixth position and the first Ducati in the field.

It was a challenging day for Aragon’s technicians, who had to grapple with a blackout in the afternoon that ultimately caused the cancellation of the premier class’ second free-practice session. In the morning session, Randy De Puniet registered the sixth-best time and was first among all the Ducatis. Loris Capirossi finished with the 17th-best time in his first outing at the Motorland circuit.

Randy De Puniet:
“It’s a shame that we couldn’t go on track in the afternoon, as the morning session went very well. For a long time I’ve looked for such a good feeling with the bike; it’s strange, considering how differently things went at Misano. I’m satisfied. The bike is working like it should, and I want to repeat my performance tomorrow and Sunday.”

Loris Capirossi:
“It’s my first time at this circuit, and I must say that the track is beautiful, but difficult. This morning I tried to ride as much as possible, and unfortunately, this afternoon we were stuck in the garage. I’m optimistic anyway. The time that I did this morning shouldn’t be considered because I was trying to understand the track. I’m sure that I’ll go better tomorrow.”
