Following his horror crash at the Austrian GP with a stricken bike, Hafizh Syahrin has announced his intention to try and ride at the Styrian GP this weekend, held at the same track.
There were no lasting injuries for the Malaysian rider barring a hip contusion, as the medical centre onsite at the Red Bull Ring has a CT Scanner they were able to determine this early, he was taken to hospital as a precautionary measure.
Syahrin said, “After the nasty crash during the last race, I had a lot of pain in my lower limbs. That same day I started my recovery and I am going to do everything I can to try to be ‘fit’ in the medical check on Thursday because I want to race this weekend. I’m improving step by step, not much, but at least I’m better than I was on Sunday. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have cared about me and all the fans who have spent their time sending me messages and wishing me a speedy recovery.”
With the races so close together, an injury can derail your entire season. Syahrin will be hoping to pass the medical check and get back on track as soon as possible.
