Ferrari honour victims of flight MH370 with helmet stickers


The victims of flight Malaysian Airlines MH 370, which disappeared on 8 March, are very much in everyone’s minds on the opening day of the Malaysian Grand Prix weekend.

Scuderia Ferrari drivers, along with all their colleagues, took to the track for Free Practice 1 in Sepang with two stickers on their helmets, one with a message in English “Pray for MH 370” and the other in Malay, “Doa Untuk MH 370.”

The trend has been followed by all the drivers participating this weekend.

On Sunday, the victims will be honoured with a minute’s silence prior to the race start. (Ferrari)

    They will eventually. Took two years to find the missing air france plane.

    For the families, I hipe it will be sooner rather than later.

    O.K. never say never. But in the Air France case searchers had a rough idea where to look, and found debris rather quickly. It took just about two years to recover the the flight data recorder and the cockpit voice recorder. (aka black boxes) It was just a question of recovery at great depth. Little effort was spent actually locating the crash site.

    This case is much different. Not only does anyone know where the plane is, it’s been weeks since the B777 went missing. Sure, They may find debris. No telling where its floated from in this much time. Winter approaches. Weather will diminish the overall effectiveness of the effort – Someone’s basically has to stumble upon it at this point and what are the chances of that? Critical time in the early days were lost due to an ineffective at best response by the Malaysian Government. They may ultimately find some debris,- but I think the aircraft is lost forever.

    I tend to agree, but considering that some gp247 readers are Malaysian, I would hate to disregard any hope they hold out. Fingers crossed for MH370 and Schumacher.
