Simoncelli succumbed in Malaysia crash..TRIBUTES @ Desirulez..Simoncelli succumbed in Malaysia crash...
Gresini Honda's Marco Simoncelli has passed away after being involved in a horrific crash during the Malaysian Moto GP at the Sepang circuit.
The Italian rider lost control of his bike on the second lap and appeared to be hit by Colin Edwards and then Valentino Rossi as he slid across the track.
The 24-year-old's helmet came off in the collision and he was taken to the medical centre.
The race was cancelled immediately after the crash as race officials focussed their attention on attending to the injured Simoncelli. Their efforts, however, proved to be in vain.
This is the second tragedy in the world of motorsport after English driver Dan Wheldon was killed at Sunday's Las Vegas Indy 300.
The Italian lost the front end of his bike on the second lap of the race and fell to his right, with the bike's wheels continuing to grip and throwing him into the path of Colin Edwards and Valentino Rossi.
Both riders appeared to hit Simoncelli, whose helmet came off during the incident.
The race was red flagged immediately, and cancelled a few minutes later when it emerged that Simoncelli was in a critical condition. He died soon afterwards.
Honda rider Simoncelli was in his second season in MotoGP, and established himself as a fan favourite with his flamboyant riding style.
He took his maiden podium spot in the series in the Czech Republic two months ago, and followed that up with a second place finish at the recent Australian Grand Prix.
Simoncelli's death is the second casualty in the top level of motorsport in the space of a week following the fatal accident suffered by British driver Dan Wheldon in an IndyCar race in Las Vegas.
