Tuuli to miss Australian Grand Prix

During Moto2 FP3 at Philip Island, PETRONAS Sprinta Racing rider Niki Tuuli was involved in a crash that saw the 23-year-old taken to hospital for further examination. Experiencing a lot of pain in his lower back, Tuuli underwent an MRI scan at the Dandenong Hospital.

Niki Tuuli was released from hospital on Saturday night with no further treatment required, however due to the impact taken from the crash, the team have deemed Tuuli unfit to race in today’s Australian Grand Prix.
