Malaysian F1 Grand Prix Winners

Malaysian Grand Prix

The Malaysian Grand Prix has been held at the Sepang International Circuit since 1999.  The race has been run 37 times, being held first back in 1962 under the Tasman class.

The record of most wins in the Malaysian F1 Grand Prix belongs to John MacDonald (England, Hong Kong) and Seastian Vettel, both with four titles.

In 2017 it was announced that the next race, the 2017 Malaysian Grand Prix would be the last. Malaysia had struggled in recent years to attract decent crowds, with preference being shown for the more glamorous night-racing Singapore Grand Prix.
