Malaysia is planning to take a "temporary break" from Formula One because of mounting losses, officials said Tuesday, in ominous signs for one of Asia's longest-running grands prix.Razlan said Sepang, which can accommodate 120,000 fans, drew just 45,000 to last month's grand prix, and added that race-day TV ratings were also poor.Official figures show Formula One has shed 200 million TV viewers globally since 2008, with common complaints including the predictability of races.This year's Singapore race saw an average of 73,000 spectators attend for each of the three days of the race weekend.Razlan declined to offer precise figures on the Grand Prix's losses, but Malaysia's MotoGP is consistently popular and this year's race Sunday is sold out.
