Andrea Dovizioso 'not in right frame of mind' for Valencia

Andrea Dovizioso has admitted he is not in the right frame of mind to race in this weekend's season finale in Valencia following the tragic death of rival and fellow Italian Marco Simoncelli in Sepang. Dovizioso and Simoncelli had raced together since childhood and the former 125GP world champion frequently criticised Simoncelli's aggressive riding style after numerous battled in MotoGP. But Dovizioso,...

Respect to Dovi. He was never pals with SuperSic but he's raced again him his whole life, so it must be a real shock for him.

I can't wait to see/hear the minutes "noise" or "symphony" as I like to call it. Shame I can't be there to witness it.

Leecho,well said

You said it all there,this weekend is going to be tough for us as fans to watch,how these guys are going to feel trying to race when everyone is still in so much shock at the loss of Marco.I keep looking at the front cover of last weeks MCN at the photo of Marco and still can't believe it.

Biggest Loss to the Sport

When any rider dies racing motorbikes it is tragic, whether at Club Level or Moto GP. However with Marco being at the top of his Sport and operating at the highest level, the shock to the world is greater. Moreover, I believe that he was the only one who could have channged Stoner, Pedrosa and Lorenzo to become a World Champion in Moto GP. We'll be talking for many years to come about Marco. RIP Marco and the upmost respect to all riders in all countries at all levels for letting the show go on.

I am surprised that many Moto G.P. riders didn't attend Marco's funeral. There may be good reasons for this however I would like to hear what they are. I have supported a certain rider for years and spent a fortune going to see him ride. He doesn't live that far from Italy and I expected him to have attended the funeral. If I hear no good reason for his non attendance that will be it in terms of my support. I will be looking out for a rider who cares about people like Marco did - I stood beside his truck after Misano this year's race and he came out and spent lots of time with his fans and cleared the way for people in wheel chairs and then talked to them for as long as they wanted. Stoner representatives set up his scooter beside the door of his truck giving the impression that he was about to come out - guess what happen - he sliped out the other side and away.

Come on MCN - let everyone know why the Moto GP didn't attend Marco's funeral .

Alot of rider don't go to funerals of fellow riders as its a reminder of what can happen in racing, I live in the isle of man and alot of TT rides don't go to the funerals of fellow rider here either, but still pay their respects in other ways

andrea can be quiet...

...he doesn't need to be hypercritical, out of all the riders he made the most complaints about simoncelli and now he feel's bad, he's a fool.
