MALAYSIAN GRAND PRIX

Of all the tracks on the Formula One calendar, this one offers the shortest drive from the paddock to the departure lounge at the nearest airport, Kuala Lumpur International. The Malaysian Grand Prix is the last event where half points were awarded. It happened in 2009, when the race had to be stopped because of the deluge that hit the track. In 1963 the host nation adopted the name Malaysia instead of Malaya, its name when under British rule. In Malay, the name of the country's currency, "ringgit" means "jagged." It initially referred to the rough edges of Spanish silver coins that were once circulated in the region. The king cobra is the world's longest venomous snake and the greatest number of king cobras in the world are found in Malaysia. Malaysia is the world's leading producer of natural rubber.
