MotoGP Officials Warn That Simoncelli Accident Unpreventable

There was a certain sense of tragic irony about MotoGP safety representative Franco Uncini discussing the accident which led to the death of Marco Simoncelli on Sunday. The 1982 World Champion suffered a tragically similar accident himself in 1983, falling into the path of Wayne Gardner's bike which struck his head, leaving him in a coma.

The message that Uncini delivered to the riders today was stark: Simoncelli's death was unavoidable and could be repeated at any race they enter.

I don't think they needed to be told and I suspect that the message was aimed more at those pushing for a knee-jerk reaction to this weekend's events.
