2012 FORMULA 1 PETRONAS MALAYSIA GRAND PRIX (Kuala Lumpur) March 25
Circuit length: 5.543km
Race distance: 310.408km
One of the most demanding races on the calendar, in terms of both circuit layout and cockpit temperatures, the Malaysian Grand Prix challenges the drivers both in both driving skill and physical fitness. Cockpit temperatures regularly exceed 50 degrees making it physically gruelling for the drivers. Sepang was the first of a series of tracks designed by Hermann Tilke and made its debut in 1999. That was the year Michael Schumacher returned after three months out with a broken leg and proceeded to dominate the race weekend before gifting victory to Ferrari teammate Eddie Irvine. The weather is typically unpredictable and when it rains – it really pours – so expect plenty of action.
