The Caterham Formula One team, sold this month by Malaysian businessman Tony Fernandes, paid tribute to the crash victims of flight MH17 at the German Grand Prix on Sunday.

The British-based team`s cars were adorned with #PrayForMH17 stickers "in tribute to everyone affected by the horrific MH17 tragedy" Caterham explained on their twitter feed.

Thursday`s crash of the Malyasian flight over rebel-controlled east of Ukraine killed 298 people.

The team`s drivers, Japan`s Kamui Kobayashi and Swede Marcus Ericsson, start Sunday`s race at Hockenheim from the rear of the grid.

Fernandes sold Caterham to a consortium of Swiss and Middle Eastern investors.
