The Sepang circuit, which is to hold the Malaysian Grand Prix, has been ordered to make urgent repairs prior to the race in less than two weeks time.
During an inspection before the start of testing this week, the FIA’s safety delegate, Charlie Whiting, called for improvements to guard rails and tyre barriers.
Local newspaper ‘New Strait Times’ quoted him as saying, “I have asked them do some minor works for the race.”
All this follows recent resurfacing work between turns 3 and 4 of the circuit, after the previous surface experienced inconsistant surface texture and grip.
The changes aren’t thought to affect this weeks test.
