RIP Shoya

Firstly let me say that my deepest sympathies are with Shoya's Family and Friends and i know that Shoya will be a great loss not only to those closest to him but also all in the MotoGP Paddock.

I agree with the majority on here that the Marshalls were far too quick and haphazard in the way they dealt with Shoya and Scott Redding but idont think the blame should be laid at their door. Dorna should have immediatiely red flagged the race to allow both riders and De Angelis to be thorughly checked before being moved. Inc Air ambulance if required.

Dorna are all about TV timings - GIVE CONTROL TO THE MARSHALLS & race control.

They should be throughly dragged over the coals for what has happened here today it is a disgrace and puts a bad name on the sport we all love.

I also will be writing to Dorna about this as someone else said earlier on this article.

RIP Shoya, You were a Joy to watch and admire.

I agrre with fatgser

MCN i second fatgser plee for you to contact Dorna and put a bit of clout behind the fans dismay at the handling of this tragic event.

Please can we have a statement from the highly paid powers that be at Dorna come out and give a reason as to why this episode was so unacceptably dealt with.

I was at Brands Hatch when Craig Jones had his fatal crash and everything came to a halt and the medical teams did as much as they could before he was even put into an ambulance. I have seen BSB races red flagged for riders crashing and ending up just close to the tarmac. MotoGP races are red flagged for rain, but this one wasnt when 2 riders were still lying unable to move of their own will. Dorna have a lot of questions to answer. this was unjustifiable and a total disgrace.

I am disgusted by the marshals who handled this situation.

A bloody disgrace.

I thought Dorna were supposed to be a professional company.

It`s all about TV schedules and money, hang your heads in shame, Dorna


RIP Shoya
