The Malaysian rider finishes a tough MotoGP season in the points. Hafizh Syahrin closes the championship in 23rd and heads back to Moto2.
After a dream season in 2018 racing with the Tech3 Yamaha outfit, Hafizh Syahrin suffered more than expected this season. Despite staying with the Tech3 team, the change from Yamaha to KTM machinery proved more difficult than initially expected.
With just 9 points to his name, Syahrin closed the 2019 MotoGP season in the 23rd spot. At the season finale in Valencia, the Malaysian rider finished the race in 15th, scoring a single point.
It wasn’t the season Hafizh Syahrin expected. After just two years in MotoGP, he will head back to the Moto2 championship. He signed a new contract with the Angel Nieto Team for 2020.
