I don't think Simon (and a lot of others) fully comprehends what Stoner was talking about in his comments regarding Sic. He didn't mean that people had forgotten him, or that they didn't miss him. He was talking about the attitude of the racing community towards safety. He is saying that, in the immediate time after the incident, there was a lot of talk about the need to change the 'win at any risk' mentality (amongst teams and fans) simply because it costs people their lives. A couple months later and people were acting as though nothing had changed - still making the same needlessly dangerous moves on the track as they were before. I think he was frustrated by the lack of any changes to safety.
