Image of the GP: Rossi Remembers in Sepang

There were many images of note over the three races held in Sepang, from the joy of Pedrosa winning, the battle between Marquez and Lorenzo with the gloves off, to the massive pile up that started Moto2.

With all these news making images and all the racing, it was the action of one rider which caused me to pick this for my Image of the GP:

I know the world moves on but it was incredibly moving to see Rossi unexpectedly carry the flag for Marc Simoncelli, who sadly passed away at the circuit just two years ago on his warm down lap, it made me wish he had made the podium where no doubt he would have continued to celebrate the life of his fallen colleague and friend.
