MALAYSIAN GRAND PRIX - RACE PREVIEW
SEPANG INTERNATIONAL CIRCUIT, KUALA LUMPUR
ROUND 2 OF 19
Kuala Lumpur’s Sepang International Circuit was first in the spate of modern tracks in emerging markets for Formula One. The likes of Bahrain, China, Singapore, South Korea and India would later follow, but Hermann Tilke’s first foray into Asia set a new standard and lay pressure to modernise on the historic European circuits. One feature the more traditional venues could not apply is the tropical Malaysian climate, which has unleashed spectacular downpours on Formula One sessions over the last 15 years. Williams’ only victory at Sepang came in 2002 with Ralf Schumacher leading home teammate Juan Pablo Montoya in a 1-2.
