The 2013 Malaysian GP should be a pretty interesting race, not sure on the weather, probably wet, but it will be hot and humid as always. It will be the 15th race around the 5.543km long, 15 corner Sepang International Circuit. The race will be 56 laps and 310.408km and Mark Webber & Fernando Alonso’s 200th Grand Prix and potentially Webber’s 10th race win.

Exactly half of the 14 races in Malaysia so far have been won from pole position and another three won from second. In fact at all but two races in Malaysia the pole sitter has finished on the podium. The only two that haven’t are 2007 and 2008, both had Felipe Massa on pole and his only two poles at the circuit.

Eight different drivers have won the Malaysian GP, with both Michael Schumacher and Fernando Alonso having won it three times. Ferrari are the constructor with the most wins at the circuit with six. The lap record was set by Juan Pablo Montoya’s 2004 Williams FW26, a time of 1:34.223 with an average speed of 212km or 132mph.

The Silly Stats

The male Malayan Tiger, found on the Malaysian Coat of Arms, is around 259cm long, meaning that you could put 2,140 of them head to tail around the Sepang International Circuit. Those 2,140 tigers eat around 36lb or 16kg of meat per day, roughly the same weight of 396 humans.
