F1 calendar set to lose races

According to crash.net, both Singapore and Malaysia are considering relinquishing the races they are currently holding on the F1 calendar.

The reason being is believed to be down to costs as the money it takes to play host to the Formula 1 circus, something that has seen plenty of other races fall by the way side in recent years.

The Singapore Grand Prix has been held since 2008 with it being the only night race on the calendar and widely regarded as a real spectacle.

In Malaysia, meanwhile, the race has been on the calendar since 1999 and is famous for its unpredictable weather causing havoc with the event.

If both events do pull out of being on the schedule the Singapore Grand Prix next year will be the last whilst Malaysia will see its last F1 race in 2018.
