Awful news from Malaysia - we'll leave it there, hoping and praying for Simoncelli to come through after that horrific accident.

-

The reason for the cancellation has come through, and it's the worst possible news: Marco Simoncelli's injuries are apparenrtly critical despite him regaining consciousness, and organisers will not run the race while his life hangs in the balance.

- 

We'd been wondering why none of the bikes had been out warming up from the planned restart five minutes ago - but it's not taking place now.

-

THE RACE HAS BEEN CANCELLED! Shocking stuff here in Malaysia!

- 

Clouds have been gathering ever since the race was stopped, and the sky is looking glooomier and gloomier now - the spectre of tropical rain is always a worry in Malaysia, we could yet see a further delay.

-

New reports in - and Colin Edwards has apparently dislocated his shoulder. Poor guy, there was absolutely nowhere to go for him when Simoncelli went down in his path.

- 

The bikes will be back out on the grid at 4:30pm local time - that's 9:30am UK time - with the race restarting with the original grid positions 15 minutes later.

- 

Reports are reaching us that Colin Edwards has probably broken a bone in his hand.

- 

Simoncelli is apparently conscious, so thankfully it sounds like his injuries aren't critical.

- 

Simoncelli is being treated in the medical centre at the circuit - replays show that he simply overbalanced and fell off, with Edwards and Rossi running into him.

- 

Rossi looks fine, but Simoncelli is still being treated. You'll get the news as soon as we do.

- 

Colin Edwards is holding his wrist in pain after that crash - unlikely that he'll restart.

- 

Shocking scenes here in Malaysia. It'll be a complete restart with 20 laps to run.

- 

The race will have to be restarted - Simoncelli doesn't look good, he's lying prostrate on the track.

2/20

There's a three-way collision! Simoncelli is down, Rossi is involved as well and Colin Edwards loses it too! Red flag!

2/20 

Stoner still leads after one lap, but the big battle on track is between Bautista and Simoncelli for fourth place - they're having a great tussle and overtaking each other back and forth.

1/20 

It's a clean start, with Stoner getting away best of the front row and the championship leader leads from the front!

- 

The warm-up lap is over, and we're about to get under way...

- 

The warm-up lap gets under way, and the all-orange front row makes for an eyecatching sight.

- 

The bikes are on the grid, the hangers on and scantily-clad girls are being hurried off the tarmac, and we're about to get under way...

- 

In the Moto2 race earlier, Thomas Luthi denied Stefan Bradl a chance to wrap up the Moto2 world championship
