Tricky corner - best way to take it?

Couldn't quite get the hang of turn three at Sepang today. No matter what I did I just couldnt turn the bike and it just steered straight off the outside of the turn every time.

I've no real idea what I'[m doing wron, so maybe one of you guys could help me out here.

I've attached a pic of the corner taken by my mate to show the the general layout and conditions at the time. Any help you can give would be a great help guys. Thanks.

At the very least you'd want snorkel and flippers ... or scuba equipment if it's a lo-o-ong corner.
