The Malaysian Grand Prix won’t be on the Formula One calendar next year, and so far, it’s going out with the wrong kind of bang.

Current Renault Formula One driver Kevin Magussen is jumping ship to Haas in 2017.

Three-time Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton recently came under fire for Snapchatting from a dull press conference.

So, there’s an “unsafe release” from a pit stall, and then there’s just plain letting your driver whack into another car. Someone in the Manor pits wasn’t paying enough attention when Manor driver Rio Haryanto was released smack-dab into Haas driver Romain Grosjean’s car during Free Practice 3.
There’s good reason why cheap fix enthusiast Red Green wasn’t appointed as a Formula One safety expert on the multi-year run of The Red Green Show.

Fernando Alonso isn't the only one leaving the track in a cloud of smoke this weekend. Romain Grosjean's Lotus lived up to its British roots, letting its smoke out of the wiring harness in catastrophic fashion.
