What is your favourite part of the Sepang Circuit?
It’s the second to last corner because it’s very tricky to get right, but I’ve always enjoyed driving it. I’m looking forward to getting back on track again so soon after the first race and really getting the season underway…

What are your tips for keeping cool in Malaysia?
Drink a lot of water, wear light clothes and of course stay in the aircon as much as you can – although that’s not something that helps much when we’re driving! It’s important to acclimatise as much as possible.

Sebastian Vettel:

What is your favourite part of the circuit?
It’s an interesting track. After the first section, Turns 5, 6, 7 and 8 are very quick and fun. Turns 11 and 14 are similar, it’s difficult to find the apex of those on every lap, especially as the tyres become worn.

What is your favourite memory of the Malaysian GP?
It’s a very rewarding circuit for a driver to win, as it’s such a tough challenge with the heat and high-speed corners. It’s rewarding, as it shows you have prepared well over the winter, so I guess my favourite memories are winning in 2010 and 2011.

What are your tips for keeping cool in Malaysia?
Don’t stress, because you can’t run away from the heat…
