Randy De Puniet has confirmed to join Pramac Racing Ducati for next 2011 MOtoGP race.So this speculation about this rumors was answered. Pramac Racing Ducati will have 2 riders for 2011 line-up after Loris Capirossi and Randy De Puniet signed. This Frenchman and Ducati has announced this agreement on Saturday at Valencia.
“Randy is a really good talent and I believe his experience will be very helpful in developing the bike,” said Pramac Technical Director, Fabiano Sterlacchini. “I’m quite sure his riding style will suit our bike so I’m really optimistic that we’ll have a really good season.”
He continued: “I’m very optimistic about next season because we have two experienced and talented riders in Loris and Randy, and with this bike you do have to change your riding style a lot from a 250cc bike. We saw this year with Mika (Kallio) and Aleix (Espargaró) that their experience was only in 250cc and their first MotoGP bike was the Ducati. They struggled to find the right tuning and it was difficult sometimes to find a compromise.”
“With Loris I think it will be easier because he rode this bike in 2007. The bike has developed since then but it is more or less the same,” he concluded.
