Arriving in Malaysia for the fifth round of the A1 Grand Prix of Nations, Brazilian driver Nelson Piquet Jr gave his verdict on the Sepang Formula One track, reckoning 'it doesn't look too difficult'.

Brazil are the only nation in the championship to have scored race wins save for the French squad and Piquet reckons it's the sort of track that could suit him.

"This is a new circuit for me but it doesn't look too difficult, it looks like a circuit I'm really going to like," said the 2004 British F3 champion. "Our car seems to work better in the high speed, and this track has a lot of high speed corners. It's also smooth, not really bumpy at all, which is the kind I like. The team know how to set the car up we'll on this kind of track so I am sure we can do well here."

Fresh from his Grand Prix Masters racing, where he scored a second place finish, Emerson Fittipaldi echoed Piquet's sentiments.

"This is the first time we will race on a Formula One track and it's a very fast track which will be a new challenge for the teams and drivers. We have to set up the car for a fast track and the drivers will have very fast corners to deal with, as well as the high levels of humidity here, which makes it tougher. I think Nelson will adapt very well as this is the kind of circuit he enjoys."
