Motogp Malaysia was cancelled at lap 19 after the tragic death of Marco Simoncelli.

Sad day for Motorsports

Had a chance to watch Simoncelli in August in Indianapolis.

It's a sad irony that Simoncelli's passing comes as racers are still mourning the death of Dan Wheldon.

Terrible news, i had just turned over to watch the Moto GP when the race was stopped, terrible to see it happen online.

R.I.P Marco.

It seems to me, by the video, that he was already off the bike.. kind of "passed out", don't you think?
And his trajectory was strange..

That's exactly what came to mind when I saw it. Certainly a tragic accident either way.

Rest In Peace Marco.

I agree
He was hanging off the bike almost as if his leg was caught and his back was sliding along the ground next to the bike before the impact. Very strange accident and a 1 in a million chance of happening in the first place. Edwards tried to get out of it but had nowhere to go. I hope Rossi goes on but I could understand if he didnt.
You were a star Marco
