Credit where it’s due: Sepang GP circuit produced a good race

The design of the first section of corners, following on from two long straights ensured the cars were able to stay close and lots of overtaking manoeuvres were seen. In addition, cars that had been overtaken were able to come back at those that had gone by, due to the sequence of right-left-right turns 1,2 and 3. The aerodynamics are still a bit of a problem for following cars, but good circuit design definitely helps to promote close racing.
