Formula 1 2011: Malaysia Grand Prix
The second Formula 1 race of the 2011 season was held in Malaysia on the circuit of Sepang. The Malaysian Grand Prix is known for its heat, humidity and torrential downpours. It was hot, but it stayed dry this year. In fact it was so hot, during the race the body temperature of the drivers reaches 40 degrees C or higher and they are severely dehydrated by the end of the race. Racing at Sepang it is not just about the fitness of the car, but also about the fitness of the driver and his ability to keep on concentrating in the heat. In the end the race was won by Germany's Sebastian Vettel and Red Bull Racing.
