Randy de Puniet says he is confident Suzuki has 'found a solution' to bring its new electronics package up to speed after it consigned him to two DNFs in Assen.

The former MotoGP rider has endured a troubled transition to World Superbikes thus far, a situation compounded by a decision to switch from Motec to Magnelli Marelli electronics from the Aragon round onwards.

Failing to finish either race last time out in Assen, de Puniet heads to Imola looking to revive his fortunes on the Voltcom Crescent-prepared GSX-R1000 after the team pledged to have found a solution to the problems experienced thus far.

"Imola is almost like a new track, having not ridden there for 16 years, and the last time was on such a small bike so it will be very different. It's an interesting track as it moves up and downhill so it will be great to ride and after three difficult race events I am really hoping for a good weekend.

"The team have been working really hard to develop the electronics since Assen and it looks like we have found a solution which is good news for me and for the whole team. I really hope we can come out at Imola and perform the way we all know we are capable.

"I'm confident because the team are dedicated to pushing the GSX-R's performance forward and I will give my best over the weekend, work hard and stay focused."
