There are times when this would be look at as the absolutely wrong thing to do, but I think they've got it right. Simo was the consummate racer and I think he would be proud knowing a weekend of racing was being done in his honour.

@ Parsons

"Can anyone confirm whether the 1 minute noise is going ahead this weekend in honour of Marco?"

According to commentator Julian Ryder, TV station Sky Italia have announced that it is. I hope it does because it would be a more unique and fitting tribute to #58 than 1 min of silence.

A few things have been put into perspective for me after Marco's death. I will never criticise Valentino for not riding hard enough on the Duke. I believe him when he says he's tried his best to get the results. I would be very saddened to see him suffer a serious injury or worse.

I am going to enjoy MotoGP and Motosport in general without the need to be overly critical of any of the drivers. Many of them are well paid, but they put life and limb on the line for it - in the end, it doesn't matter how much money you have, you can't take it to the grave.

Don't believe Stoner!

I feel sorry for Casey and can only imagine how he must feel after always speaking of Marco in the past with Venom.

Edit all you want Crash but you know it and we know it!
