Doesn't seem right to me. I realise Capirex is just trying to show respect to Marco but it still just doesn't sit right. No-one should be running it. Have it on your leathers, helmet or your bike sure, But don't run under it. The last person to race #58 should have been Marco.

I think Loris knows Marco's family and has spent quite a bit of time with his father Paolo since the accident. He also went to the funeral. I'm pretty sure that running the #58 number as his own personal tribute would have been done with the blessing of the Simoncelli family.

A wonderful tribute from Capirex, his last race and that of #58. Marco will always be remembered for his hanging it out there style, with the world a darker place with the loss of such a telented and charismatic individual. RIP #58, my thoughts are with your friends and family.
