Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370: F1 discuss holding tribute at Malaysian Grand Prix after missing flight believed to have crashed into Indian Ocean
Drivers, teams and officials will honor the 239 people aboard the flight that went missing earlier this month
Thursday 27 March 2014
Formula One teams, drivers and officials are preparing to honor the victims of flight MH370 at this weekend's Malaysian Grand Prix.
Sunday's race will be held at the Sepang circuit, adjacent to
Kuala Lumpur's main airport where the ill-fated flight took off
earlier this month. Authorities now say it is almost certain it
crashed in the Indian Ocean, killing all 239 people aboard.
The Mercedes team, which is sponsored by Malaysian oil company Petronas, will have messages of support on its cars and driver helmets. Driver Lewis Hamilton said the tragedy is "just heartbreaking" and that "my heart and thoughts go out to the families and friends."
F1 officials and local organizers will hold discussions on Thursday about how to best commemorate the loss.
