The way you watched the collision happened, I saw it in the same way.
It obviously went very fast but I focussed at Valentino's bike, in a quick second I saw Simoncelli's helmet rolling and I feared the worst. Immediately when I saw the helicopter shot I was absolutely stunned and speechless, my heart really sank.
I was following many twitter feeds because a local Television station in my country cut the Motogp program short, ditto for BBC. I've heard TVE en Canale 5 broadcasted the program till the very, very end.
When I read that Simoncelli was concious I was so reliefed, but minutes later when I read that Sic passed away I cried my longues out, I just couldn't believe it.
I agree with you man! Why did they told us that Simoncelli was concious, I mean even the doctor that released the CPR statement told the world that Sic was unconcious and especially after I read Paulo's (Sic's dad) statement. My outmost respect to his dad, what a great man.
Even though I'm still very emotional and devastated from what happened last sunday I'm also angry that they briefed us with a false statement, that Simoncelli was concious. That is just not right!
We lost a great character in the sport and I will miss him dearly.
