Salam, seperti tidak percaya, saya baru sahaja membaca pengesahan berita kematian Marco Simoncelli, beliau telah meninggal dunia selepas kemalangan yang buruk di Sepang.
Marco Simoncelli has died 🙁
Topi keledar Simoncelli tercabut ketika kemalangan di selekoh 11 apabila beliau tergelincir dengan motosikalnya melintang di atas litar dan ketika itu menjadi laluan Edwards dan Rossi.
The race was stopped after four minutes when Simoncelli’s bike veered across the track at turn 11 into the path of Colin Edwards and Valentino Rossi.
The 24-year-old had his helmet knocked off and was hit by both other riders.
American rider Edwards also fell but escaped serious injury – while fellow Italian Rossi was able to return to the pits.
Simoncelli lay motionless on the track after the impact, while the race was immediately red-flagged.
At first officials were looking to restart the race before the extent of Simoncelli’s injuries became clear.
Honda rider Simoncelli first entered MotoGP for the 2010 season and won his first pole position at the Catalunya race in June this year.
Simoncelli’s first podium finish came in the Czech Republic in August when he finished third but he bettered that with a second-place finish at the Australian GP.
World champion Casey Stoner said: “As soon as I saw the footage it just makes you sick inside. Whenever the helmet comes off that’s not a good sign.”
British MotoGP rider Cal Crutchlow Tweeted: “RIP Marco Simoncelli! A great rider and all round nice guy. My thoughts are with all his family & friends. I will never forget today.”
Australian Formula One driver Mark Webber Tweeted: “RIP Marco. A special talent that will be missed. Thinking of your loved ones and all the MotoGP paddock.”
The Italian started in the 125cc class in 2002 and moved up to the 250cc class in 2006.
He claimed the 250cc world title in 2008.

*Maaf video saya tak sampai hati nak letak kat sini* klik ataslah ye kalau nak tengok.
Sebenarnya hari ini plan kami sekeluarga ke Litar sepang untuk menyaksikan MotoGp, tapi disebabkan suami ada hal maka kami batalkan niat untuk pergi kesana.
Semasa Aiman dan Haziq tengok Motogp ni, saya sibuk di dapur, Aiman jerit-jerit panggil, Aiman nampak sedih, dia tanya saya, “orang tu mati ke?, kat sana ada doktor ke tak?”, sob….sob…
– RIP Marco Simoncelli 🙁
