The mood at the Malaysian Grand Prix last weekend was sombre. That was because of the disappearance of flight MH370.

Lewis Hamilton of Mercedes GP, who celebrated his first triumph at Sepang, like many drivers and Formula One aficionados present, dedicated his victory to those affected by the tragedy.

But amidst the gloom, it was the grid girls who provided much relief to the eye at the rain soaked Sepang Circuit in Kuala Lumpur.

You can check it out. Also see how their attire has changed over the years.

It rained last year too during the race. The weekend was made memorable by Sebastian Vettel, who stormed to victory, leading a Red Bull one-two ahead of teammate Mark Webber in a race packed with intrigue, incident and plenty of bad blood.

The cars started the race on intermediate tyres following a heavy downpour in the mid-afternoon, but the main talking point was the disharmony between the drivers of the leading four cars with both Webber and Rosberg feeling let down by their teams.

Webber moved up from fifth on the grid to first after the second round of pitstops and finally gave up the lead to Vettel, who had demanded his team mate be moved aside by his team, on the 44th of the 56-lap race.

The grid girls, which matching umbrellas, though, made for a good picture.
