2013 Petronas Malaysian Grand Prix
The recently concluded 2013 Rolex Australian Grand Prix at the Albert Park Circuit has been a tremendous event for everyone in the land down under where Kimi Raikkonen of the Lotus F1 team was hailed to be the front runner for the season opening of the 2013 Formula One Grand Prix.
The battle does not just end there and will be continued this coming weekend, March 24, 2013. And this time, in Southeast Asia!
Formula One Grand Prix will be invading the Asian regions by storm as the 2013 Petronas Malaysian Grand Prix at the Sepang International Circuit, in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, takes over for the continuation of the clash of the finest drivers, and the best formula one racing cars battles for the title!
Formula One at the Sepang International Circuit
The World Championship Malaysian Grands Prix has seen a good deal of action on and off the track, whilst the weather—furnace heat one minute, tropical storm the next—adds extra spice. The most notable Grand Prix at Sepang to date was the inaugural event in 1999.
On 13 February 2008, the management of the Sepang International Circuit announced its aim to become Formula One’s second night race from 2009 after Singapore, following discussions about buying a floodlighting system. Its plans seem to be moving forward when Datuk Mokhzani Mahathir, the chairman of the circuit, revealed that they were in the process of securing a lighting system. He was quoted as saying, “They might be custom made for the circuit.” However, since then, the organizers have confirmed that they will not be making the race a night race, but will be adopting a late-afternoon start time. The 2009 Malaysian Grand Prix indeed did adopt a late afternoon start time. However this proved disastrous due to heavy rainfall and the race not being able to be restarted due to the low light level making it through the clouds. The race was abandoned.
The Sepang International Circuit
The Sepang International Circuit is a motorsport race track in Sepang, Selangor, Malaysia. It is located near Kuala Lumpur International Airport, approximately 60 km south of the capital city Kuala Lumpur. It is the venue used for the Formula One Malaysian Grand Prix, A1 Grand Prix, Malaysian Motorcycle Grand Prix and other major motorsport events.
So for those of you who can’t get enough of the recently concluded 2013 Rolex Australian Grand Prix, and wants to know whether Kimi Raikkonen of the Lotus F1 team can keep up being on the top notch, or if the other drivers such as Sebastian Vettel, Mark Webber, both for the Infiniti Red Bull Racing Team; Fernando Alonso for the Sceduria Ferrari team, Jenson Button for the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team; and or Lewis Hamilton for the Mercedes Petronas F1 team; if you want to know whether these drivers can outburst the phase from Raikkonen, then let’s all keep an eye for this terrific event which I’m pretty is going to be another heart pounding action on the race track!
