Although Hafizh finished the race at the second last place, the Tech 3 ace stole the show once the race was over when he helped the race’s champion, Marc Marquez.

According to reports, as Marc celebrated his first-place win, his HondaRC213V which was out of fuel and running on fumes suddenly gave up.

Hafizh swooped in to rescue the Catalan by giving him a push back to the pit – quite literally.

The audience at the race were pleasantly surprised by the method Hafizh used to tow the Honda hero, which is unbeknownst to them, actually a VERY Malaysian way.
