Sepang International Circuit, Malaysia


Looking in at the circuit

Pit lane

Start finish straight. It's a long one

Turns 1 and 2. Heavy braking with a slight incline into turn 1, keeping tight on exit as that opens up turn 2. Turn 2 is downhill and falls away from you. Then it is a long, flatout right hander.

Approach to turn 4. Slight incline again, tight right hander is easy to run wide at.

A long left hander

Flowing into a right hander

A double right hander follows, just beyond turn 15 there.

Turns 9 and 10 - a left hander uphill into a right hander. Be careful on upshifts out of the corner as there is very little traction through here and dropping it into the wall is easy.

Turn 11 - a deceptively slow right hander. Vale Marco Simoncelli.

A long, flatout left hander leads into

A double right hander. Very difficult braking zone as you are braking as you turn, easy to lock up or run wide.

All the way back down the straight and to turn 15, a hairpin before launching back down the start finish straight.

So in my last post I hinted at the possibility of fencing and trees. Well, here is fencing and trees. Once I got it right, it wasn't too hard. One day I will go back and redo Albert Park. Anyway, enjoy the race, and do a little better than I did. 1.43 is a terrible lap time here.
