The second consecutive race in Bahrain will also take place at the Sakhir circuit, although this time the perimeter route will be used, which is much shorter and faster than usual. Furthermore, it will be an entirely nocturnal Grand Prix.
The first Sakhir Grand Prix in history it comes loaded with many interesting things, because not in vain we will have two illustrious absentees with Lewis Hamilton and Romain Grosjean. The first has tested positive for COVID-19 and still has no official replacement (although it will most likely be Stoffel Vandoorne), while the second will leave his post to Pietro Fittipaldi.
And all this will take place on a circuit well known to Formula 1 fans, Sakhir, but with an unprecedented layout in Formula 1 and that presents the particularity of travel the entire perimeter of the Bahraini complex, which will allow a very high average speed and a lap time probably less than one minute.
Already in a purely competitive aspect, both championships are decided in favor of Hamilton and Mercedes, but the dispute for third place in the constructors’ championship continues in style, with McLaren enjoying a 17-point advantage over Racing Point, which in its turn time adds 10 more than Renault.
