MotoGP: Hafizh Syahrin to ride for Tech3 at Thailand test, poised to be first Malaysian MotoGP racer

Published

on

HAFIZH Syahrin will ride for Tech3 Yamaha at the upcoming Thailand test, increasing speculation he will become Malaysia’s first MotoGP racer.

The 23-year-old had not been among the riders expected to be under consideration for the seat unexpectedly vacated by Jonas Folger a fortnight ago.

However, Syahrin announced his departure from the Malaysian-backed Moto2 team he had been expected to race for in 2018 — replaced by countryman Zulfahmi Khairuddin — leaving him free to make the step up.

“First of all, I want to thank Herve Poncharal for giving me this opportunity and of course the entire Monster Yamaha Tech3 team. I’ll try to do my very best during these three days in Thailand,” Syahrin said.

Franco Morbidelli streaked home to win the Teruel Grand Prix on Sunday as Joan Mir took third to extend his lead in the MotoGP world championship with only three races to go.

Morbidelli started from second on the grid behind pole sitter Takaaki Nakagami whose dream weekend turned into a nightmare when he parted company with his LCR-Honda at turn five on lap one.

With the Japanese rider cruelly out of the picture, Morbidelli was left with clear air in front of him, and the Yamaha-SRT rider made the most of his good fortune.
