Sepang – The Inside Line

Sepang – The Inside Line

Paddy Lowe, Executive Director (Technical)

"Sepang is a very different racetrack to Melbourne – a permanent facility with a full range of cornering speeds which is very unforgiving on the car. It’s also one of the most challenging events of the year in terms of both human and mechanical endurance due to the extreme heat and humidity. Throw in the near-certainty of torrential downpours and it’s never a straightforward weekend operationally. We may see some slight adjustments in the performance differential between teams due to the very different nature of the track relative to Melbourne and we’re also bringing a few small updates to the cars – fixing a few points which have not quite been up to scratch thus far."
