Val's initial body language as he was entering the pits showed he knew the seriousness of what had taken place. Val's waving to the cameras as they caught up with him as he was sitting and resting showed that the true seriousness was not yet realized, and actually gave me some hope. Seeing Colin again out there in the field not being transported and his body language took any hope of Simo being alright. Colin looked absolutely crushed.

@kimey - Vale retire?? - been suggested all day throughout the various comments on various reports .

I would imagine that this is the last thing that Marco would have wanted - or his family would !!

One thing they have/had in common is that they are both no-compromise RACERS !!

God bless them all !!

Thanks Vale. I've been trying to come to terms with Marco's passing all day, but cannot. Words like these bring some comfort. I cannot imagine what the pain is like for his family, and those in the paddock. RIP Super Sic.

As racing fans we often take for granted the incredible commitment, passion and sacrifices it takes to achieve what a rider like Marco has in his tragically short career. As lifelong racefans, we live vicariously through them, watching their stars rise through the classes, only dreaming of what it must be like to have such a gift. To see it taken away so abruptly and so tragically, is genuinely heartbreaking.

It shouldnt take something like this to make people realise each and every riders worth, so I hope dearly that people might show a little more respect and understanding for the riders who put their heart and soul into racing so that we, as fans can admire their incredible talent and live our racing lives through them.

A truly tragic day that i'm gonna struggle to come to terms with for a long time, but Marco wont ever be forgotten, those who live and breathe the sport as he did will rightly hold him in their memories as a true star and a genuinely lovely guy, tragically taken fr

Today was a very sad day and It's difficult to take it all in, a truly bad day in this sport.

One of the greats has been taken from us.

R I P Marco our thoughts are with you & your family & and of corse all those closest to him in the paddock.

@ Rear

His chin strap was clearly snapped from one side with the buckle still in the middle from a pic i saw, nothing to do with his helmet being 1 size to big, he still would of died with a smaller helmet!

Still in shock i think, no chance of sleeping now, 2 gone in a wk. plz, No More!

RIP Super Sic x
