RIP Marco Simoncelli

Marco Simoncelli has died after a horrific crash at the Malaysian MotoGP in Sepang.

The race was cancelled after four minutes when Honda rider Simoncelli fell and was hit by Colin Edwards and Valentino Rossi as he slid across the track.

The 24-year-old had his helmet knocked off in the accident and the race was immediately red-flagged.

Honda rider Simoncelli first entered MotoGP for the 2010 season.

He won his first pole position at the Catalunya race in June this year.

The accident happened at Turn 11 when Simoncelli's bike veered across the track into the path of Edwards and Rossi.

Simoncelli, who was motionless on the track after the impact, had been fourth at the end of lap one after qualifying in fifth.
