San Marino MotoGP: Rossi’s 'Wish you were here' Simoncelli helmet

"We decided to remember him with a song from Pink Floyd, that every time I hear I remember Marco" - Valentino Rossi.
On Saturday at his home Misano round, Valentino Rossi unveiled a special helmet, dedicated to his much missed friend Marco Simoncelli, featuring the artwork and lyrics from Pink Floyd's “Wish you were here”.

Like Rossi, Misano was Simoncelli's local circuit and is now named in honour of the 250cc world champion, who lost his life in a racing incident involving Rossi and Colin Edwards at the 2011 Malaysian Grand Prix.

"This time we decided to make something more serious because it is already quite a long time that Marco is not with us, but here is his racetrack - more than me because his house is closer and also the circuit is in his name," explained Rossi.

"So we decided to remember him with a song from Pink Floyd, that every time I hear I remember Marco. This was the idea. A tribute to him."
