De Puniet confirms Tech 3 talks
5 August 2009 – Randy de Puniet has admitted he is in talks with the Tech 3 Yamaha team for next season. The Frenchman is one of the candidates the French team would be willing to sign up for next season.
De Puniet told MCN about the Tech 3 possibility: "My manager is speaking with Lucio and Herve but at this moment nothing is clear. He's been talking with Lucio for the last three races to continue in this team with a better bike from Honda. With a better bike I'm sure I could fight in the top five. But sure the Yamaha looks like a very strong package and this could be a good option."
