Malaysia open to F1 return in the future

Race organisers of the Malaysian Grand Prix are willing to return to Formula 1 calendar – but only if the sport becomes more competitive.

Malaysia will not be part of the schedule next year after hosting its first race in 1999 and becoming a firm favourite with the fans.

But, even though Malaysia will be missing from the calendar, it does not necessarily mean it will be gone for good.

"Of course we are considering a return, the circuit was recently renovated. said race promoter Razlan Razali.

"However, we want to have exciting races and not boring parades. Liberty Media must ensure that the competition is better.
