Mar.17 (GMM) Malaysia is "not in the mood" for next weekend's Grand Prix at Sepang.

That is the admission of track chief Razlan Razali, even though he confirmed the race is on despite the country's real focus being on the mystery of the missing Malaysia Airlines flight 370.

On 8 March, the Boeing 777, its crew and 227 passengers disappeared en route from Kuala Lumpur to China, and despite the involvement of 25 countries in the frantic search, the missing flight is still yet to be found.

Now, Malaysia is set to host the second round of F1's 2014 season.

"People are not in the mood for an event like this," Sepang chief executive Razali told the AFP news agency.

"Everywhere, be it on radio, newspaper, TV or social media, it is all about finding MH370."

However, Razali said there is no doubt the race will go on.

"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 explained.
