The 2000 Malaysian Grand Prix was the final race of the 2000 Formula One Season. It was held over the weekend of October 20-22 2000 at the Sepang International Circuit near Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It was the 2nd running of the Malaysian Grand Prix at this circuit.
Heading into the final race of the season, Michael Schumacher won the driver's championship after winning in Japan. This win gave Schumacher an unbeatable lead of 12 points heading into Malaysia. The constructors championship though hadn't been decided with Ferrari and McLaren still in with a chance at the title. For McLaren they would need to get 14 points more than the Ferrari to win the championship and with 16 points available it was going to be a tough task.
