Riders to pay homage to Simoncelli at Malaysia GP

The MotoGP Championship makes an emotional return to the Sepang track this weekend, where San Carlo Honda Gresini rider Marco Simoncelli tragically lost his life in the opening stages of last year’s race – which was subsequently cancelled.

This year riders will aim to pay homage to their late colleague and friend by putting on a tremendous display of motorcycle racing at its finest.

The main race gets under way at 3pm Cambodian time on Sunday.
