Kuala Lumpur in Sepang is one of the newer circuits around, being one of the first for Hermann Tilke. Located right next to the international airport, it is very easy to access and means transport to and from the track is pain free, always a bonus! Getting onto the track, it is just over 5KM long and is also quite wide. It remains almost the same as when it was first built in 1999, although a makeover of the track took place to repair damage caused by the horrendous rain and wind experienced. This has often played a part in several of the F1 races creating excitement and unpredictable results. One of the best corners is turn 1, providing a good overtaking place and a super place to watch as the corner doubles back on itself.
