Simoncelli dies from injuries suffered in Malaysian GP crash

Marco Simoncelli has died from the injuries he sustained in a crash on the second lap of the Malaysian Grand Prix. He was 24.

Simoncelli was fighting for fourth with Alvaro Bautista when he lost the front of his bike and slid across the circuit, into the path of Colin Edwards and Valentino Rossi, both of whom appeared to hit the Honda.

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 4.56 it was announced he had succumbed to his injuries.

Requiescat in pace.

2 motorsport fatalities in 2 weeks... RIP.

Bad luck comes in 3's, I hope we don't see a fatality in the first India F1 next weekend.

Horrible, Rossi was really close and good friends with Simoncelli as well, i can't even imagine what would be going through his and Edwards mind tonight.
Another young Moto rider losing his life after Tomizawa, Tomizawa was a potential 250/Moto2 future champion and Simoncelli was potential future MotoGP World Champion.

Sad day, and to think there is nothing that could have been done to avoid this, this is how bike racing is. Those men have tremendous courage to continue doing this, all respect to them.

Steve Parrish is of the opinion that Valentino will retire because of this. I think he could be right. Colin may well follow suit.

They should all wear number 58 on their bikes at Valencia in a fortnights time.

RIP Marco
