David Coulthard Narrates A Lap Of The 2015 Malaysian GP

There have been 17 Formula 1 races at Sepang since 1999 and in total, the Malaysian Grand Prix has seen 9 different winners throughout the years.

This might prove to be good news for anybody hoping that Mercedes will have their hands full this weekend with either Red Bull or Ferrari, though it was the Scuderia that claimed victory last year with Sebastian Vettel crossing the finish line first, beating Lewis Hamilton by 8.5 seconds.

Vettel also holds the all-time record for most laps led at Sepang with 175, having passed Fernando Alonso when he claimed victory last year.

Malaysia has also been the place where Max Verstappen (with Toro Rosso last year) became Formula 1’s youngest points scorer after finishing 7th in 2015. He was just 17 years, 5 months and 27 days old and was already able to drive the wheels off that Renault-powered STR10, as you’re about to see in the video below.

As he frequently does, former F1 star David Coulthard provides the narration as he analyzes not just the track, but also the way Max carries himself through the corners.

What sets the Sepang track apart from other F1 venues is the number of high speed corners. The scary chicane near the end of the lap is one obvious highlight that requires drivers to approach it flat out in order to not lose time.
