7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

Malaysia will stop host­ing a For­mula One grand prix af­ter their cur­rent deal ex­pires in 2018. The race in Sepang has been an an­nual fix­ture on since 1999, but only 45,000 fans at­tended the 120,000-ca­pac­ity cir­cuit this year. “It’s the cor­rect de­ci­sion be­cause it’s more ex­pen­sive and no longer that at­trac­tive,” said Nazri Aziz, Malaysia’s cul­ture and tourism min­is­ter.
