Sepang reveals circuit changes for 2016 F1

Malaysia’s F1 chief has revealed that the Sepang circuit has undergone significant changes ahead of the 2016 race.

Usually one of the first races each year, the event just outside Kuala Lumpur has instead been paired with the nearby and popular Singapore night race this season.

“On Monday after race day in Singapore, the F1 freight will be transported by road to the Sepang circuit,” said Sepang chief Razlan Razali.

“It’s the first time it’s been done in the region,” he added.

Another novel feature of the 2016 Malaysian grand prix, Razali added, is changes to the actual corners at Sepang, which according to the Straits Times newspaper have been done to encourage overtaking.

“There will be some unknowns for the teams and drivers as we’ve changed the dynamics of the circuit a little bit at the various turns,” Razali confirmed.

“It will be as if they’ve come to Sepang circuit for the first time.”

Singapore’s race is on 18 September, with Malaysia taking place two weeks later.
