< Kuala Lumpur last 24 hours Issued at:  (UK Local Time)

29 September – 1 October - How will the weather affect this year's Malaysia Grand Prix?

The Sepang International Circuit in Kuala Lumpur is one of the most technical circuits in Formula One. Its combination of long straights and tight turns allows for plenty of overtaking, making for an exciting race for drivers and spectators alike.

How does weather affect racing?

Different weather conditions can result in very different races, and Formula 1 teams adapt their strategy accordingly, for example using different tyres in wet conditions, and taking account of cross winds which can cause stability problems at high speeds.
