MILESTONE
A cutting edge facility located in the middle of a desert, Sakhir hosted the Middle East's inaugural Grand Prix in 2004. Mostly laced with medium-speed corners that are not really difficult, local conditions though cook up other challenges. Drivers have to contend with fierce ambient heat and the circuit can be quite slippery, which is frequently sandblasted by strong winds that whip across the adjacent terrain. Cars are also blasted with air infused with damaging sand particles.

One of the unique destinations on the calendar, Bahrain's imposing desert backdrop significantly influences track conditions and car set-up over the weekend. Grip levels are another casualty of the sand and can be considerably reduced when it settles on the track making all but the racing line dangerously slippery.

The track is a complex mix of slow and medium speed corners connected by three high speed straights. The track isn't a classic but its mix of medium and slow-speed corners are usually a good indicator of a car's competitiveness.
