PETALING JAYA: Moto3 rider Zulfahmi Khairuddin notched another top 10 finish with a seventh placing in the Grand Prix of the Americas in Austin, Texas, on Sunday.
Despite starting from 12th on the grid, Zulfahmi was very competitive throughout the race. The Banting-born rider stayed inside the trailing group and was rewarded with nine World Championship points in the end.
Zulfahmi, who finished sixth in the season-opening race in Doha last month, is sixth in the overall standings on 19 points.
Alex Rins won the race as Spaniards snatched all the podium places. Maverick Vinales was second and Luis Salom, Zulfahmi’s team-mate, third in a five-lap finishing sprint that followed a red-flag stoppage brought about by Dutch Jasper Iwema’s crash.
Zulfahmi expressed mixed feelings about his performance at the Texan track.
“The race was stopped (because of the crash) and I was able to put on a new tyre for the restart and I pushed right to the end. And I’m happy with this result. Hopefully we can improve more at Jerez (Spain, May 3-5),” he said.
