All good things must come to an end… we’ve seen it coming and now it is confirmed, the Malaysian Grand Prix this year will be the country’s last F1 race after 19 years on the Formula 1 calendar.
The decision was announced by F1 commercial boss Sean Bratches and was taken jointly by Formula 1 and Sepang International Circuit (SIC).
“It’s always sad to say goodbye to a member of the Formula 1 family,” commented Sean Bratches, Managing Director, Commercial Operations, Formula 1. “Over nearly two decades, the Malaysian Formula 1 fans have proven themselves to be some of the sport’s most passionate supporters.”
“As we said in Melbourne, we have big plans for bringing our global fan base closer to the sport than ever before, providing an enhanced digital experience and creating new events. We’re looking forward to talking more about these plans as the season progresses.
“We will have 21 exciting events to look forward to in the 2018 calendar, with the additions of the French and German races. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the Sepang International Circuit for their hospitality and professionalism over the years, and their ongoing commitment to motorsport.”
Malaysia will host the last Formula 1 Grand Prix race on September 29 till October 1. If you have not yet had the opportunity to watch a Formula 1 race in Malaysia, now is the best time for you to book for a ticket as Sepang International Circuit (SIC) has significantly slashed the F1 ticket price this season compared to last year.
