Randy de Puniet looking to maintain consistency at Mugello

Posted:

The 2010 MotoGP World Championship resumes this weekend with one of the classic races on the calendar as the stunning Mugello circuit in Tuscany hosts the Grand Prix of Italy, an event that produces a unique atmosphere.

With six MotoGP races over the next eight weekends, the LCR Honda MotoGP Team is looking to start its busy summer with a strong showing at the Italian classic.

Top privateer Randy de Puniet aims to continue his impressive and super-consistent start to the 2010 MotoGP season with another strong ride.

Sixth at the Qatar season opener, 9th at warm Jerez circuit and seventh at Le Mans two weeks ago, de Puniet has an extra reason to do well at Mugello as his team owner Lucio Cecchinello is an Italian, and himself a former Italian GP winner in 2003.

‰ÛÏI like Mugello very much but I have never experienced the podium in my career and never obtained a very good result in the premier class... so far!" De Puniet mused.

"Last year I finished the race in eighth position in strange conditions but I feel more confident this year on this bike. There‰Ûªs the longest straight of the season and you need to have a really good bike set up to exit the last corner because during the race you can easily get passed by other riders. We will fix the engine mapping to be as fast as possible and we will keep on working in the same direction because our target is to maintain the sixth place in the World Championship," the Frenchman concluded.
