R.I.P

This was a deeply affecting crash, i feel sick from seeing it. I can only hope any videos of this crash will be removed out of respect for this man, just like they did for Kato. This is the side of racing i hate or just motorcycles in general. If you haven't seen it, please don't watch because i wish i hadn't seen it. R.I.P Shoya Tomizawa

I don't suppose I would have done any better than those poor marshals did given the dangerous circumstances in which they were trying to operate. Had someone (Dorna) hit the red flag button, I am sure the marshals would have reacted more cautiously, stabilised the poor bugger as best they could until he could be airlifted to the nearest hospital. Who knows what extra damage they did by man-handling his rag doll body onto that stretcher and then dropping him on his head! I was already seriously considering giving up on MotoGP as it has become so ridiculously boring this season. This incident just drives home that Dorna are incompetent on many levels. WSB, here I come........

Where's the red flag!!!!!!

Not happy with marshalls, circuit directors,etc.Should have been red flagged. Dragging riders onto stretchers what a disgrace. You could see the poor guys leathers ripped to shreds. RIP.

RIP Shoya

I think everyone would agree that Marshalls do a fantastic job at circuits around the world and especially in the event of an accident.  However, like many have said here today, the marshalls at San Marino could have been more professional - Why the hell was the race not red flagged.  If Dorna are in control of the race because of money and TV time, then this has to stop NOW.  The race should be run by the officials and not the TV companies, if viewers miss some of the race because of an incident, then so be it.

BLOODY DISGRACE

If this fast clear up was to keep the TV schedule on time. MOTOGP hold your head in shame. BSB or WSB would have red flagged, or at least the safety car. Redding and DeAngelis i hope were not futher injured by the marshalls.
