So that's why he's called RANDY de PunietTue, 20 Jul 2010 00:00:00 -0700
RANDY de Puniet may well have just been ejected from his LCR Honda RC212V MotoGP racer during qualifying for Sunday's Sachsenring GP but that ain't gonna stop him from bringing one of the company perks with him to Dr Costa's on-circuit surgery.
The Frenchman crashed during qualifying after hitting oil and water spilled on track by Jorge Lorenzo's Fiat Yamaha, after it spewed its guts along almost the entire length of the start finished straight. Following the crash De Puniet was whisked away on a stretcher with a suspected broken foot. It turned out he was ok.
Sadly, de Puniet's leg was fractured for real in Sunday's race when Pramac Ducati rider Mika Kallio ploughed into the Frenchman as he lay on the track following a highside crash.
