Simoncelli was involved in a fatal accident with Colin Edwards and Valentino Rossi during the Malaysia GP at the Sepang International Circuit. In fourth position at the end of lap one, during lap two his bike veered across the track and straight into the path of Edwards and Rossi. The race was immediately red-flagged. Simoncelli lay stricken on the track after the crash, his helmet having come off during the incident. He was taken by ambulance to the circuit's medical centre, but at 16:56 it was announced he had succumbed to his injuries

I saw the crash as I watched the race this morning. Horrific. Im so sadened by this. I really liked Marco alot. While his riding style was controversial at times his personality was magnetic. Rest in Peace Marco and may God comfort those you left behind. We will all miss you.

My thoughts go out to his family, the riders involved and the entire Honda Gresini team.

Marco's passing is a huge loss to our sport and this truly is an epically sombre moment for all that followed his career.
