I've seen the crash now, and it looks like Rossi's front wheel was what took Simoncelli's helmet off.
I can't help thinking that both Rossi and Edwards will be in bits over that, even though there was no way they could have missed him.

Rest in peace Marco, unavoidable accident, that's the most horrific crash I've ever seen, really feel for Rossi and Edwards, allegedly Rossi and marco were best mates off the track, makes it even harder.
I wonder if that will push either if them to early retirement?

So sad, it happens we know, they know the risks as do we all but it hits me when I think that he was about the same age as our daughter.
