GP Malaysia: Prior GP Malaysia To 2016: Information and timetables


The Malaysian Grand Prix has traditionally been very interesting, both because of the extreme demands to which are subjected to machines and pilots as to the variable weather, which can change the normal course of the end of the week at any time.

In which the championship is concerned, the dispute for the title is the high point, but it is not, or much less, the sole focus of interest. Lewis Hamilton has to react and stop the streak of three consecutive victories from Nico Rosberg, while Red Bull and Ferrari are living a new chapter of his contention for the runner-up position. Also the dispute between Force India and Williams for the fourth position and between McLaren, Toro Rosso and Haas for the sixth, will focus a good part of the interest this weekend.

Ferrari and Mercedes monopolize the statistics relating to the engines, with the italians leading the number of victories, poles and miles led, while the germans set the tone in what to fastest laps, podiums and points referred to in.

technical Characteristics

Work of Hermann Tilke, it is one of the few paths designed by the German engineer with the approval of the fans. Sepang supposed to be a litmus test for the map in aerodynamic single-seaters, with several curves of long radius medium -, or high-speed. This type of curves require the car a lot of grip, aerodynamic, since the car spend a lot of time spinning, not something that happens at right angles each time more present in the circuits of the new generation. In addition, the grip aerodynamic multiplies with the increase of speed, so the faster the curve, the more importance it will take its effectiveness in this regard.

it Is a very complete circuit, in which virtually all aspects of the car become important in a moment or another of the back. To do this, we must add the physical exhaustion of the pilots at the toughest race of the year on dry, the great demands that will be under the tires and, of course, the added difficulty of achieving an optimal cooling of the internal systems of the car as a result of the heat. A few systems that still have not been tested in similar conditions and can provide a lot of surprises in the form of a mechanical failure during the weekend, especially in that thruster units and energy recovery systems referred to in.
