Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel will be hoping to replicate his 2011 success at this year's Malaysian Grand Prix.

(TRAVPR.COM) UK - March 1st, 2012 - The Sepang International Circuit is set to host the 14th edition of the Petronas Malaysian Grand Prix on Sunday March 25th.

With 12 teams and six Formula One champions due to line up on the grid, the stage is set for another classic race on the outskirts of Kuala Lumpur.

Sebastian Vettel of Red Bull triumphed at the end of an exciting contest in Malaysia last year, with McLaren driver Jenson Button finishing second and Renault's Nick Heidfeld in third.

Vettel went on to win the drivers' championship in 2011 and will be aiming for another victory in Sepang this year, as he bids to complete a hat-trick of world titles.

If the 24-year-old German star does claim the championship again in 2012, he will become the youngest three-time winner in the history of Formula One.

Local fans are expected to be out in force for the event, as there are currently three teams with links to Malaysia - Mercedes AMG Petronas F1, Lotus F1 and Caterham F1.

Tickets for the Malaysian Grand Prix vary in price, depending on where fans choose to sit. Ruby category seats in the main grandstand north - upper section are available for 1,323 (£276).

Racing fans can find a huge selection of Kuala Lumpur hotels at AsiaRooms.com, such as the Sunway Lagoon Resort Hotel.
