The horrific incident last week saw the Openbank Aspar Team rider colliding with Enea Bastianini’s downed bike which sent him flying before the race was red-flagged. As bad as the crash may look like on television, Hafizh Syahrin was conscious throughout and even better, no news of any broken bones or fractures.

Unfortunately, the crash led to severe pains and bruising, especially on his right side. During yesterday’s physical examination by Dorna’s medical professionals, Hafizh Syahrin was deemed unfit to race due to his physical conditions.
The young Malaysian Moto2 rider will then focus on recovering as much as he can before the next round in Misano, Italy in the middle of September. For this weekend’s Styrian GP, Aspar Team’s MotoE rider, Alejandro Medina, will be taking over Hafizh’s racing role in Moto2. Get well soon, Pescao!
