Very good, amend every thing,
Because some posters are very dist****d people.
It a very worrying observation, but nothing changes for them,they are relentess in their obsession.

This would not be a good time for rossi to retire. He is the sports ambassador and arguably the strongest (in general) rider on the grid. Alot of young upcoming riders look at him and say "WOW! What a career! I want to be like Valentino Rossi" It would be a big blow to motogp if he retires. If he does, alot of riders would think twice as well. He is a 9 time world champion, and unfortunately he has a small responsibility to carry the sport through this tragic moment. Everything should stay as normal as possible. Continuity is the key. Plus, Sic would not want VR to retire. I wouldnt know what Sic would say to VR but I would assume it would be something like "Vale, we are warriors and this is what we do. Go ahead and dont worry about me. I'll be with you all the way"

People who are around bike racing are never in doubt as to the danger. I acted as paramedic at motox and road racing in Darwin for about a year. Even in that small place I dealt with two accidents that would have been fatals if paramedic services had not been on the spot. There were several other serious incidents as well in that year that involved time in the orthopaedic ward and this in a town of a hundred thousand people in only one year. The motogp riders are not likely to quit over this unless they were already considering quitting and this puts the icing on the decision. Statistically speaking they all would have had exposure to fatalities and disabling injury to other riders in their careers. They always have it in mind and are prepared that someone will get maimed or killed. The shock is usually who gets hurt rather than that someone does. It just personalises the fear. The first bad crash they ever have themselves puts the "it wont happen to me" attitude out o heir head

Assumptions, presumptions, a waste of time, what will be will be ... But what we will not forget is, what Valentino and Marco gave our own time and good memories. We will certainly miss you Marco, on the track and your charisma off the track. RIP 58 .... Vale! do what what you will, you are either way, a legend today, a legend yesterday, and forever a legend tomorrow. Cheers 46!

How riders cope with situations like this beats me!To have the strength to get back on a bike and race again having gone through this horror shows how resiliant these men have to be! Valentino will never forget Marco and once the pain of losing him eases, he will be back on the track with even more reason to win!!

If Vale and Colin both decide to retire everyone should respect there decisions, they owe all us Bike racing fans nothing and have laid it on the line to entertain us for years. I just hope they both do as they individually feel is right with no pressure from anyone. Thanks guys for the entertainment for so long and RIP Marco (you made Moto GP worth watching this year for sure).

I hate to think Rossi would retire because of this and deep down Rossi probably knows Simmo would not want him to quit, I would actually like to see Rossi on Simmo's Honda fighting at the front once again but of course this would probably never happen. RIP Simmo and please send a good wish to your mate Val and all his fans as we will be thinking of you when Rossi gets back up on the podium.

"No, You live more in 5 minutes at speed on a bike, than most people live in their lifetime" - Marco Simoncelli

The above is more or less Marco's answer when asked if was scared on a Moto GP Bike, how right he is.
