Rossi Wearing Special Simoncelli Tribute Helmet At Valencia

During the 10 o'clock trial laps today, Valentino ran with a new helmet dedicated to his friend Marco Simoncelli.

To demonstrate how much Valentino was affected by the tragedy that hit the Honda rider, Valentino's helmet will be divided in half: the front part of the AGV GP-Tech will be exactly like Marco Simoncelli's, with its red and white motif and ever present number 58, while the back will maintain the colours Valentino used throughout the 2011 season.

Vale will use the helmet for all of Valencia's weekend.

Valentino stated: "I really miss Sic, and I still haven't completely realized what happened. I thought the least I could do was dedicate my helmet to him and to his number, 58. Here in Valencia number 58 is all over the paddocks, everyone wants to remember him. Sic, this helmet is for you!"
