Malaysian GP set to be subdued
18 March 2014 – The Malaysian Grand Prix later this month will be a subdued affair given the national crisis there over the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370, the organisers have said.
“People are not in the mood for an event like this. Everywhere, be it on radio, newspaper, TV or social media, it is all about finding MH370,” Razlan Razali, Chief Executive of the Sepang International Circuit told AFP.
“Whatever it is, Formula One will go on, and the concert after that will proceed but we will be sensitive and not go overboard,” he added.
The Boeing 777 was bound for Beijing, but disappeared on March 8 with 239 passengers and crew aboard. As yet no wreckage has been found. An international search is on-going.
