< Sakhir F1 last 24 hours Issued at:  (UK Local Time)

14-16 April - How will the weather affect this year's Bahrain Grand Prix?

100,000 spectators will visit the Sakhir Circuit over the race weekend, which has been part of the F1 calendar since 2004 when it became the first round of the F1 championship to be held in the Middle East.

 

How does weather affect racing?

Different weather conditions can result in very different races, and Formula 1 teams adapt their strategy accordingly, for example using different tyres in wet conditions, and taking account of cross winds which can cause stability problems at high speeds.
