PETALING JAYA: Hafizh Syahrin finished seventh for his best performance of the season at the Indianapolis Grand Prix in the United States.
The Petronas-backed rider, in his maiden season in Moto2, started from 13th but made up ground to eventually cross the finish line 18.67 seconds behind winner Mika Kallio of Finland (26:07.410). Azlan Shah Kamaruddin of Idemitsu Honda Team Asia finished 20th.
The 20-year-old Hafizh’s previous best performance was 10th in the German Grand Prix at Sachsenring in June.
