Malaysian Grand Prix Predictions on March 30th, 2014

Malaysian Grand Prix

The Sepang International Circuit, Kuala Lumpur will be the venue for the Malaysian Grand Prix that will take place on March 30. Four time defending Formula One champion Sebastian Vettel is the defending champion of the Malaysian Grand Prix and was also a winner in this event in 2010 and 2011. Joining Vettel on the podium last year was his Red Bull racing teammate Mark Webber, who has since left the Red Bull racing team due in large part because Vettel refused to follow team orders and not overtake Webber in the Malaysian Grand Prix as it was supposed to be Webber’s race to win. Lewis Hamilton joined them at the podium after finishing 3rd.

The Malaysian Grand Prix is a total of 310 KM or 192 miles with a track layout of 5.5 KM or 3.44 miles with a total of 15 turns. This track was opened for F1 betting action in 1999.
