Race Day

I had the opportunity to watch the 2010 Petronas Malaysian Grand Prix last weekend at Sepang Circuit.

The annual event is part of the F1 calendar and is held for 3 days - the Friday and Saturday sessions are for practice and qualifying rounds, and race day is held on Sunday.

Before the race, the Royal Malaysian Air Force made flybys with their MiG-29 jets.

The race was won by Sebastian Vettel of team Red Bull, his team mate Mark Webber - who won the pole position in qualifying - was second, and German Nico Rosberg of Mercedes came in third.

We took hillside tickets which offered us great vistas on the race, albeit there is no roof, so sunburn is one of the downside.

How to Get there:
Sepang Circuit is located about 10 minute drive from the KLIA Low Cost Carrier Terminal, so flying in via Cebu Pacific or AirAsia (I flew in using the latter from Singapore) is quite convenient. There are designated buses from the LCCT to Sepang that leaves every 10-15 minutes and the ride only costs 4 RM. Tickets to the race can be purchased online.
