S’pore sabos M’sia

In Malaysia on 09/04/2017 at 6:17 am

This yr’s Malaysian Grand Prix will be the country’s last after 19 years on the Formula 1 calendar.

Malaysia had struggled in recent years to attract a significant crowd, its appeal damaged by the more glamorous night-time event on a street track in Singapore, which made its debut in 2008.

It was confirmed in November that the race would end after the 2018 staging, but that decision has now been brought forward.

The country’s prime minister, Najib Razak, said: “The Cabinet has agreed to end the contract after considering lowering returns to the country compared to the cost of hosting the championships.”

One Tun M must really be unhappy. He made M’sia Great by bring F1 racing to the region. Now when he’s trying to make a comeback, F1 in M’sia comes to an ignominious end because of dwindling crowds and revenue because of S’pore.
