The news came in…
Relatives of those ill-fated passengers in the mysterious Malaysian Airlines tragedy were asked to move out of KLIA hotels. To make way for the incoming Grand Prix circus complete with its performing teams and fanatics. They’ve booked way ahead apparently and thus have brushed aside what maybe a slight catastrophe for a few.
Our sport has no space for sympathy it seems.
Yet every pixel-sized space, across all imaginable media around the world has been scrupulouslyÂ utilised to commemorate the 20th death anniversary of a Brazilian Formula 1 legend.
The irony lies in the fact that Ayrton Senna was the kind of soul who would’ve instinctively traded his hotel room for a family that has tragically lost it’s loved ones.
