Hazy Sepang

FORMULA 1 people arriving in Kuala Lumpur in the course of Tuesday were greeted by a rather smelly, smoky haze caused by peat fires which have been burning in the region for some time. The government says that the fires are under control and that the race is not under any threat although the fires are unlikely to be put out in time for the weekend, a situation which promises to make the Sepang weekend a difficult one. Temperatures are very high at the moment in Sepang but the smoke is likely to obscure sunshine so it will be interesting to see how the two tire companies deal with the problem.
