KUALA LUMPUR – The Youth and Sports Ministry is leaving the issue of the deteriorating performance of national Moto3 racer, Zulfahmi Khairuddin to the Sepang International Circuit (SIC).
Its minister, Khairy Jamaluddin Abu Bakar said he would discuss with the chief executive officer of SIC, Datuk Razlan Razali as soon as SIC decides on the fate of the racer in October.
“When mentioning Moto3 racers, definitely performance is the main issue considered. I leave it entirely to SIC over Zulfahmi, let them decide first,” he told reporters after opening the Universiti Islam Antarabangsa (UIA) level independence day celebration, here Friday.
Zulfahmi, who joined the Ongetta-AirAsia Honda team, prior to this said he would leave it to SIC to decide his future in the effort to rescue his career following his poor performance this season.
According to Zulfahmi, SIC would make an announcement about his future for the 2015 season latest by October, whether to remain with the present team or to join another team. – Bernama
