Anybody watching Moto GP & see the crash, Simoncellis helmet got ripped off, This looks real bad.
Has the race been stopped?
Yes they've red flagged the race & will restart it, Coverage is on BBC2, Simoncelli is awake apparently so hopefully not as bad as it looked, Simoncelli went down & the bike brought him back into Rossis path, Rossi hit Simoncellis head & ripped his helmet off.
Hope he is OK, we don't need anything else bad happening in motorsport this month!
Looked pretty bad, hope the helmet did everything it needed to before coming off.
Cheers slothmeister/captainrave, Seeing that helmet roll away was nasty.
Blimey they nurfed your vid already Captain.
That was quick!!!
both taken straight down
Jesus shocking week for motorsports after Dan Wheldon last Sunday, hope Marco is ok, missed the crash as was watching the Rugby but switched over and saw the race was red flagged.
Not seen the crash but sounds horrific if it ripped his helmet off
It's not sounding very positive, hope Marco is ok, terrible to see the helmet rolling down the track.
bloody hell, posted a link i watched literally seconds ago, and already down, wtf.
The race has been abandoned now and his injuries described as critical
I still have it buffered in youtube, theres a very good quality slow mo of it and his face is grinding across the tarmac
I hope he makes it through this, one of my first thoughts was "no way his helmet should have come off, poor helmet design!" but I guess all that hair is going to influence the fit. C'mon Marco, you have not had your time yet.
I'm praying that he pulls through this.
Hope he's ok as MotoGP need characters like him
That is a nasty accident
