    Really bad week in all for motorsport. Thoughts go to his family and friends at a terrible time. He was absolutely helpless, and when the helmet comes off like that he was pretty much guaranteed to be severely injured

    It is rather a freak accident I have to say - not nice. Seriously thinking of using the car tomorrow.

    Saw it on TV this morning, horrid to see a helmet fly off, although the news came back he was "concious" to the pit lane, must be hard for those trackside that saw it all unfold

    Not to mention his good friend, Rossi saw it happen right in front of his eyes.

    My thoughts go out to Marco's family & friends

    I think Rossi was in shock when he rode back to the pits, he must have known it was bad. Wouldn't be at all surprised if he retires.

    On another forum people have been sugggesting that rossi might retire. I saw the race and seriously couldnt believe it. Marco in my eyes was a good rider to watch, the way he pushed his way through the pack.

    Tribute to Marco though:
