Malaysia Preview: Facts & Stats

The Malaysian Grand Prix saw, in previous years, several records set and broken. This weekend's event at Sepang could continue the trend. Sean Kelly brings the facts & stats ahead of the second round of 2006

When Malaysia hosted its very first Formula One race seven years ago, it was viewed with much intrigue. The F1 fraternity had not visited a new nation since Australia was added to the calendar back in 1985.

Sepang was the first circuit designed entirely by Hermann Tilke, after his previous efforts were concentrated on modifying existing circuits. Subsequently, Sakhir, Shanghai and Istanbul have increased to four the number of tracks on the calendar that are wholly developed by the German. All of his creations have been in nations that never previously held an F1 event.
