The reason behind the Malaysia Grand Prix leaving the Formula One calendar is because the sport is too boring apparently.

When Formula One heads to Malaysia in September it will be for the last time.

The Sepang International Circuit was first added to the Formula One calendar in 1999.

Ten different drivers have won on the 5.543 km track, including Sebastian Vettel who has won on four separate occasions.

But the 19th Malaysian Grand Prix at Sepang will be the last as it drops off the calendar for the 2018 season.

Could it return at some point in the future? Possibly, but only if things get more exciting according to Sepang International Circuit chief executive Dato’ Razlan Razali.

‘If it ticks all the boxes, we will take it back. We want to see how exciting F1 is again. The new owners need to take back control of F1 and the racing. he told

‘Racing has become less exciting and that has had an impact on interest, both in terms of TV viewers and those coming to the track. They need to bring the excitement back, they need to sort it out.

‘Let’s see what the new management comes up with.’
