Malaysia GP To Alternate F1 Race With Singapore
Officials of the Malaysian Sepang Int'l Circuit "are open to consider the possibility of alternating their F1 Grand Prix on an annual basis starting in '15 with the Grand Prix of Singapore."

Sepang's current deal with F1 CEO Bernie Ecclestone runs until '15, and due to shrinking attendance numbers race promoters "are not sure if they want to extend their contract." Sepang Int'l Circuit CEO Razlan Razali recently said that "F1's restriction for race promoters are too high, which makes it difficult to create any attractions that would help to draw fans to the track."

Having with Singapore a highly attended F1 race in relatively close proximity "does not help Sepang either." Razali said, "Malaysia and Singapore are in the same region, and I think it is bad for Singapore and Malaysia [that the two circuits are so close to each other]. I believe we can attract more people if Malaysia and Singapore would alternate instead of taking place in the same year" Motorsport Magazin
