The Malaysian Grand Prix will go ahead this weekend, despite the plane that left the country and never came back. MH370 Malaysian airliner left Kuala Lumpur on 8th March and hasn’t been seen since. This weekend the Malaysian Grand Prix will happen in Kuala Lumpur despite the mixed opinions from the inhabitants of Kuala Lumpur. A Malaysian resident said “It’s not just a Malaysian tragedy. The whole world feels the same. I don’t follow Formula 1. I don’t think there should be a big celebration, but I have no problem with the race going ahead.”
At the Malaysian Grand Prix Nico Rosberg (shown in the picture) and his teammate Lewis Hamilton’s cars will be bearing the message “Come Home MH370”. As a sign of respect the Formula 1 community will not have the usual after race party.
