De Puniet has screw removed from knee
11 April 2011 – Randy de Puniet has undergone further surgery for the removal of a screw from his left knee. The Pramac rider began the season with the support in place following the crash which broke his leg at the Sachsenring last year. With the operation having been successful, the Frenchman now looks forward to the Portuguese Grand Prix.
The 30-year-old has yet to finish a race in 2010, having retired in both Qatar and Spain.
