Dwindling ticket sales and lowering TV viewership are being cited as reasons.
If F1 goes out of Sepang, I think India should bag it back. But the hassles created earlier may be relaxed if they approach the government.

Few numbers on overtakes from the 2016 Championship,
  • Max Verstappen completed 78 overtakes during the 2016 F1 season, F1 tyre supplier Pirelli confirmed Verstappen's tally is the most since 1983. Others in the top 5 are, 61 overtakes by Daniel Ricciardo, 56 by Sergio Perez, 52 by Fernando Alonso, 49 by Valtteri Bottas
  • Red Bull recorded the most overtakes during the season (78 by Verstappen, 61 by Ricciardo and 15 by Kvyat).
  • Fernando Alonso's gained 41 places on the opening lap of races
  • Sebastian Vettel was overtaken just once all season - by Verstappen in Brazil.(I think this doesn't include the opening lap)
  • Lewis Hamilton claimed the most overtakes in a single race, making 18 passes during the Chinese Grand Prix after contact at Turn 1.
  • World champions Mercedes were overtaken on the fewest occasions; Rosberg four times, Hamilton three.
