This is one I have been to, so this is based on my experience, as well as others reviews.
The transport to and from the ground is simple, as in the main KL train station, they sell the specific tickets which will mean a train to the area, then a bus ride (or two) to the track. It does get very busy and packed, so travel EARLY… as in 6 hours or so before the race (well, you’ll want to0 see practice before quali and be settled in well before the race on Sunday). Travel away from the track after the race does take a while, as the roads get heavily congested. The first circuit buses take a very long route back to the other bus which will take you back to the train station, so it may actually be smarter and quicker to walk back to the train station buses from the track. This will make sense once you have done the journey in on the buses.
The best seats seem to be K1, and this is where I sat. The view is great – you get plenty of over-taking, car time view, and the view itself is actually stunning, looking over Asian mountains and the clouds roll in. These are my photos:
The official Sepang website has an excellent seat viewer, just like the Bahrain website does, so kudos to them: Sepang seat viewer.
If money is no concern, then the Sapphire seats on the straight are one of the best, if you love to see the pit action.
The only downsides are that the food is truly dire – I don’t mind any hotdog or burger etc. at an outdoor event, but the food is just crap, so bring your own food. There is plenty of cold beer and water, so no worries there.
With the weather, you will need rain-cloaks, umbrellas – as well as plenty of sun-block as usual!
