KUALA LUMPUR, 17 Aug – After escaping serious injury in a scary nasty crash on Sunday during the Austrian Grand Prix, Malaysian Moto2 rider, Hafizh Syahrin Abdullah is game to race again this weekend if he gets medical clearance.
The 26-year-old Malaysian suffered the crash in the first round at the Red Bull Ring Circuit in Spielberg, Austria but is already thinking of the next race – the Styria GP which will be held at the same venue this weekend.
Hafizh, who rides for Inde Aspar Team, glad that the medical team confirmed he did not sustain any serious injuries in the crash and gave the thumbs-up sign – obviously delighted with the good news on his injuries.
“However, I still feel the pain in both legs. The left leg hurts. I am using crutches to help my movement,” said Hafizh in a text message.
“I hope to recover soon and hopefully I can ride this weekend (in the Styria GP, which is scheduled for Aug 23).
In the incident, Hafizh crashed at full speed into leader Ena Bastianini’s bike that was lying in the middle of the track after the Italian had crashed at the first curve in the first lap. The Italian dons Italtran Racing Team colors.
Hafizh hit the machine at full speed that sent him through the air while the bike was smashed into pieces.
“I consider my lucky…extremely lucky. It was a horrific crash,” added Hafizh who finished top ten in his first two outings – sixth in the Spanish GP and ninth in the Czech Republic GP.
