As a Moto GP fan it was horrifying to witness the crash which ended in the loss of Marco Simoncelli’s life. He was a great rider and showed lots of promise during his first year within the sport’s elite competition.

I was horrified too at the Daily Mail’s utterly tasteless coverage of this tragedy utilising photographs of his parents’ intense grief. Shame on you (again) Daily Mail. Surely one for the toothless press complaints commission to review.
