TWELFTH PLACE FOR DE PUNIET IN MORNING PRACTICE

The Friday afternoon free-practice session at Mugello was affected by rain, which kept many riders in their garages. Pramac Racing Team’s Randy De Puniet was the rider who spent the most time on track, turning in thirteen laps. At day’s end, the Frenchman’s best time (1:50.729), posted in the first session, was good for twelfth place in the combined standings. Tomorrow, weather permitting, De Puniet will have the opportunity to work on a good setup for Sunday’s race.

“Once again, we lost a session; the weather this year is always like this. That means that we’ll have to work more quickly tomorrow in order to make up for the lost time. It will be difficult to put our ideas into practice, for us and also the other Ducatis. The tyres seem to work better than at Silverstone, perhaps due to the temperature of the asphalt. We’ll work a lot on the geometry to see if we can come up with something good.”

“Today could have gone better; it’s a shame that once again the weather has affected the bike setup. This morning wasn’t bad, but I obviously can’t compare the bike from the first session to that of the afternoon. I need more time to understand which are the right choices to make.”
