首相拿督斯里納吉強調,雖然雪邦國際賽車場明年起沒有舉辦第一級方程式賽(F1),惟該賽車場不會被閒置或淪為「白象」計劃。

他指該賽車場將被充分善用,包括舉辦許多活動。

首相納吉說,政府和賽車業人士正在制定其他賽事,以在雪邦賽車場上演。

「我們將在國內發展其他類型的賽車活動,希望看到更多大馬人參與。我認為大馬粉絲希望看到大馬賽車手參與。」

他在雪邦國際賽車場媒體中心召開記者會說,自己是帶著感傷的心情前來觀看這決賽,過去19年這F1賽車比賽也讓人留下許多回憶。

「透過舉辦此賽車活動,我們可看到一定程度上,大馬在世界版圖中占一席之位。我知道國油已展示在F1賽車的參與,以及作為國家主要及跨國石油公司的品牌。」

With the absence of the Formula One (F1) race at the Sepang International Circuit starting next year, the circuit will not be left idle or risk becoming a 'white elephant' project, said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

"Sepang Circuit will be quite heavily utilised and it is not going to be a white elephant, there will be many many activities," PM Najib told a press conference at the SIC media centre, here today.

The Prime Minister and his deputy, Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi were here to watch the finale of the F1 Petronas Malaysia Grand Prix 2017.

"I come to the final F1 being held in Malaysia at Sepang Circuit with a great deal of sentimental kind of feeling, we have hosted the event for 19 years.

"We have since then saw thrilling events over the 19 years. We have been able to some extent put Malaysia on the map of the world by hosting the F1 race. I know Petronas has been able to showcase its involvement in F1, and as well as its brand as major national and multinational oil company," PM Najib said.

PM Najib noted that the government and through the race promoter, SIC, were currently in the process of formulating other events that will be showcased or carried out at Sepang Circuit.

"We will develop other kind of motorsports in this country, we would like to see a stronger Malaysian participation. I think that is what Malaysian fans wanted to see...Malaysian drivers participate," he said.

On April 7, PM Najib in a statement announced that Malaysia will no longer host the F1 race next year after the government agreed to terminate the organising contract.

The contract had to be terminated following sharp decreasing returns to the country compared to the organising cost.

"It doesn't mean that hosting the F1 can't be reconsidered in the future, provided the economic condition is favourable," said PM Najib
