Formula 1 world champion Sebastian Vettel has said that the Malaysian Grand Prix circuit will pose a serious challenge to F1 drivers during the second race of the 2012 season.
Vettel,who is looking for Red Bull to get back on a par with McLaren after defeat in Melbourne,has won at Sepang for the last two years.
Sepang has big run off areas and a broad track,meaning it appears easy but it’s not. The heat,high humidity and weather arent the only challenges,as the main thing is to find the ideal car set up, said Vettel.
There are two straights of almost one kilometre,but you also need a lot of wing on the car to create enough downforce for the corners,so it requires skill to find the right compromise.
Its good to go there off the back of Australia and I hope we get another strong result, he said.
The young German is currently second in the world championship,The Mirror reports.
