The state-of-the-art circuit, Sepang International Circuit was officially opened on March 9, 1999 by current Prime Minister Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad. It was completed in a record 14 months and with the recognition of its ultramodern facilities, it was given the honour to incorporate the F1 logo in its name.
