Nice to see tributes coming from different motorsport fields. Although some felt he was sometimes too hard charging he was recognised widely as a genuine talent.

I have the race recorded and feel the only way I can pay him tribute is to watch his last race. I do not know if I will watch past lap 1.

I would like to see a real tribute to the guy. I did one for Craig Jones I put on Youtube (the 3 part video). I would hope I can go there next week and see a real tribute that celebrated his life and not death scene after death scene. One of the nicest compliments I got was it ended the way it should have - on his bike. This is what I hope for.

Rest in peace.

Glad I didn't wake up early this morning to watch the live feed. So thankful to not have what must have been a horrific crash in my mind. Now I can can always remember his determination and tenacity - a quick smile and that crazy hair. A fighter and true racer...MotoGP, its fans, and all who knew Marco will sorely miss him.

RIP SuperSic
