#CzechGP: To stand in again for Khairul Idham Pawi

  • 02.08.2019

Jonas Folger will again to race for the Malaysian PETRONAS Sprinta Racing team this weekend.

After a three-month injury break, the Malaysian rider Khairul Idham Pawi wanted to start his comeback this weekend at Brno. However, his finger injury still causes him so much trouble that he had to throw in the towel after the second free practice session this afternoon. Jonas Folger, who had already replaced the young Malaysian rider in the last three races, had been planning to attend round ten of the season since long. But now he is slipping into the role of the racer instead of the spectator.

 

#94 Jonas FOLGER (PETRONAS Sprinta Racing, KALEX):

“First of all, I’d like to say that I’m very sorry for Pawi. He was injured for a long time, and he worked hard on his recovery during that time. He really wanted to try it. But after the second session he had to realize that his health is not yet ready. I can well imagine that this setback is difficult for him to cope with. Nevertheless, all the best to Pawi. On the other hand, I am happy to come to this opportunity at such short notice. I will use it to do many laps and also to prove that I am ready to return to racing.”

“I want to show again my potential because I just enjoy racing. Even though it won’t be easy because we missed today’s free practice sessions, I want to enjoy this short weekend to the full again. We’ll just try to catch up as much as possible from tomorrow morning onwards. Anyway, I’m already excited. According to the weather forecast it should be rain tomorrow. That would be a great help for us, of course. Nevertheless, I am very happy, first and foremost because I’m able to ride again as well as the fact that I can work with this crew again and of course that I can attack on track again.”
