Description

Sepang made a big impression when it joined the F1 calendar in 1999. The drivers loved the wide-open spaces and the sweeping corners, while facilities were second to none. The '99 race saw one of the biggest controversies in recent F1 history when the Ferraris of Eddie Irvine and Michael Schumacher were disqualified from first and second places for running illegal bargeboards - then later re-instated.

The next two races were also dominated by Ferrari. In 2000, Schumacher enjoyed a championship party two weeks after winning the title in Japan and a year later he and Rubens Barrichello staged an incredible fightback after losing nearly a minute changing to wet tyres.

Ralf Schumacher ended Ferrari's domination of the event in 2002, winning comfortably after brother Michael and team-mate Juan Pablo Montoya clashed at the first corner. Both fought back to finish on the podium but the Colombian received F1's first ever drive-through penalty for his troubles. McLaren took the honours in 2003, Kimi Raikkonen winning a race for the first time.
