PETALING JAYA: The off-circuit action at the 11th Petronas Malaysian Grand Prix on Sunday is expected to be just as exciting as the F1 race.
Revving up the excitement will be British acid jazz outfit Jamiroquai, which will lead the Grand Prix Party at the helipad area beside the Sepang International Circuit.
The Manchester band, led by 39-year-old lead singer Jay Kay (real name Jason Cheetham), will treat F1 fans to music from its six studio albums.
Kay, a keen sportscar enthusiast and Ferrari supporter, is looking forward to the second race in this year’s F1 calendar.
