KUALA LUMPUR, 21 Aug – After escaping near death in a horrific crash last weekend, Malaysian rider Hafizh Syahrin Abdullah has not been given the green light to race in this weekend’s Styrian Grand Prix at the same venue where he crashed.
The 26-year-old Malaysian has not fully recovered from last week’s crash at the Red Bull Circuit in Spielberg, Austria that left him with a severe pelvic contusion.
It was a lucky escape for Hafizh in the scary nasty crash when he was full throttle hitting around 200kph.
“Frankly, I want to compete very much in the upcoming race but the doctor has medically advised me to take a rest for recovery,” said Hafizh on social media.
Hafizh crashed into rider Enea Bastianini’s bike that was lying in the middle of the track after the Italian had at the fallen at first curve in the first round in the Austrian GP.
The high-speed crash sent Hafizh, who rides for Inde Aspar Team, flying in the air and his bike smashed into pieces. Hafizh landed heavily but was lucky to have escaped serious injury although he had to use crutches to move about.
Hafizh’s place Inde Aspar Team in the Styrian GP will be taken by Spaniard Alejandro Medina.
The Malaysian finished in the top ten in his first two outings – sixth in the Spanish GP and ninth in the Czech Republic GP.
He is keeping his fingers crossed that he will be back in action next month and compete in the San Marino (Sept 13) and Rimini GP (Sept 20) at the Misano World Circuit in Italy.
