" I worked hard. My bones have recovered well. I felt ready and motivated, but I didn't get the green light for Macau. The Audi doctors told me that another accident would further damage my hip. I was willing to take the risk, but I wasn't allowed to and I respect that.", declared the Belgian on his Twitter account.

René Rast will replace Laurens Vanthoor on the #7 Audi of Team WRT.
