Today I turned 27, and miraculously my friend sending me a card full of glitter was not the shittiest thing that happened...
A few days ago I discovered a second nerve was damaged in the crash at Frohburg, impairing the motor function of the inner and outer quad muscles in my left leg. Considering the uncertain nature of nerve damage, mainly the recovery time, my team and I got in touch with the Macau GP organisation. This morning they came to the same conclusion we did, which is that it's too big of a safety risk for me to race the Macau GP this year. It seems we're all going to have to wait until 2019 for the first woman to race this amazing circuit and event.
Obviously this is quite tough to accept, to be honest I'm completely heartbroken, especially considering my injury resulted from an unacceptable situation. However - what's done is done. Luck is for losers, bad shit happens, and all we can do now is learn from it!
I'll be working my ass off this off season to make an even stronger Macau Grand Prix debut in 2019!!
