I can't believe I'm starting another one of these topics so soon after Dan Wheldon. Unfortunately, Marco Simoncelli, 24, has been killed following injuries sustained in an accident during the Malaysian Moto Grand Prix.

For anyone who wants to see, there's a video here.
It's not particularly nice viewing.

This is an unbelievable shame, he was a young guy with great talent and potential to go all the way and challenge at the highest level. I was totally gutted when I found out, as I have become a Simoncelli fan over the past few years. His ballsy, arms and elbows style earned him a few scowls in the paddock, but he had great charisma too which won many over.

His big hair and personality that went with it actually inspired me to grow mine long too.

My thoughts go out to his family and friends. He will be sorely missed.

Here is a short montage of his 250cc Championship winning season.

Rest in peace.
