The International Sepang Circuit hosted the first Malaysian Formula 1 Grand Prix in 1999. Initially placed towards the end of the season, the race was moved up to the beginning in 2001. Built in a stadium-like manner, a consequent amount of grandstand seats lay on the Home Straight and offer fans views of more or less 50% of the circuit.
With seven clear straights and a series of narrow turns, Sepang is a demanding track and offers several overtaking opportunities for the drivers. Moreover, the heat and humidity of Kuala Lumpur boasts unpredictable weather conditions for the race, adding action and adrenalin to an exciting venue, and an extra challenge for drivers and teams.
