However, Sepang chief Razlan Razali has has said that a "watertight" contract which lasts until 2018 would cause problems if they were to cancel the race immediately.

"It will involve legal issues if (Sepang) breach the contract which was signed last year and runs through 2018," he told the local Bernama news agency.
