MILESTONE
Sepang was the first F1 circuit to be designed and built by Hermann Tilke. It's a wide racetrack (14m at its widest point) with an undulating mix of long straights and sweeping fast corners.

A purpose-built facility, the lap provides a blend of medium and high speed corners combined with several slow speed sections and blisteringly fast straights. Such a dynamic track poses a particular challenge for the drivers and their engineers as a quick lap depends on a car with a well balanced set-up for the complex mix of corners, plenty of power for the quick straights and sufficient cooling capabilities to counterbalance the extremes of temperature and powerful humidity.

With temperatures reaching 40°C, climatic conditions can play a significant role in the outcome of the Malaysian Grand Prix. Coupled with the high humidity levels and the constant threat of heavy downpours, the drivers and their cars will be pushed to thermal limits. As temperatures soar, so will the heat in the cockpit, and the driver's physical and mental fitness levels will be severely tested. The combination makes for a harsh working environment.
