I'm still feeling ill after watching the video.

During the Sepang race, he fell off his bike and skidded across the track. He was hit by another rider.

He died in hospital. Condolences to his loved ones. Absolutely horrifying to watch.

edit: I don't know the absolute specifics so I corrected myself.

Absolutely guttered, my heart goes out to his friends and family and everyone associated in the sport.

Marco was my 2nd fav after Casey so it has hit pretty hard, heart just sank. Valentino and Colin must be feeling like hell at the moment. Just another example how dangerous motor sport can be. Loved the way he went about it, a true character. Still had a whole life to live. Forever remembered Marco thanks for the memories. Find peace.

Whoa cannot believed what has happened. I'm not much of a MotoGP fan but have started watching the past few races and this is just a shock. Wheldon's death in the Indycar last week and now this, I'm really hoping something like this doesnt happen in the F1 next weekend. Simoncelli looked like a really decent racer and off the field. A personality lost at such a young age. RIP

RIP.

Such a horrendous accident, sent shivers down my spine watching him lay on the road with no helmet.

Felt sick after seeing the video on FSN - horrible, horrible stuff. He was making quality progress, probably would have had a breakthrough season next year. Seemed like such an entertaining guy off the track. Also really do feel for Rossi and Edwards... such a freak accident.

RIP Marco.

Watching the video just makes you sick. RIP and at least his body is home now his family can prepare their arrangements for his funeral.
