Pre-Race Statistics of the 2014 Malaysian GP

Multi 21 and the most awkward podium in F1 history, last year’s Malaysian GP was an odd one.

Sepang is the first track of the year with International Circuit in the name, a name addition that I hate more than is normal. It is the 16th Malaysian GP, 11 of which have been won from the front row of the grid, eight from pole and three from second. The track is 5.543km long with a race distance of 310.408km, the longest on the calendar. Eight drivers have won in Sepang, with three different drivers having three wins each, Schumacher, Alonso and Vettel.

Ferrari have won the race an impressive six times, with four different drivers, Irvine, Schumacher, Raikkonen and Alonso. But it is Williams and Juan Pablo Montoya that hold the track record, 1:34.223 and an average speed of 212kph or 132mph.

Williams will be making their 600th race start as a constructor in Malaysia. It will also be the 300th combined race start for Stewart-Jaguar-Red Bull.

The Silly Stats

The Petronas Towers in Malaysia are the same height as 476 Mercedes F1 cars. Or the height of 254 Nico Rosbergs or 260 Lewis Hamiltons.

After spending two weekends racing in Austria, we finally move on to a different track and country, and it's one Hamilton is incredibly dominant at.


  1. interesting entertaining and informative as ever! But its debatable whether Malaysia 2013 was the most awkward podium ever. Austria 2003 gives it a run for its money I would say!

    • Ahh good point, but Malaysia 2013 had three awkward drivers, Austria 2002 had just the two.

      • Goo point!! (and obvs I meant 02 not 03!!) Didnt think of the Merc situation when I wrote the comment!! although the whole MSC moving Barrichello onto the top step thing was very dodgy!!
