The words escape me. I am stunned and shuttered. For once, I do not know what to say. I was watching both the World Cup Rugby final game and the MotoGP race in Sepang, and when the fatal accident happened, I turned of the Rugby game. No more interest in watching it.
Marco Simoncelli was a "mensch". He was a colorful character, that in a sport that sees a lot of robots and aliens, it was nice to see someone that had character. Fun and live loving. On top of that, he was an extreme motorcycle racer, full of talent, someone who could have been world champion.
For me, and for many, he will be greatly missed. That he may rest in peace, and my thoughts go out to his family, friends and fans.
Thank you Marco, for all the pleasure you gave us.
