The Circuit Details

Located at Sakhir, 30 km south-west of the island's capital, Manama, the Herman Tilke designed circuit contains no less than five track layouts within one complex.The 5.411 km Grand Prix circuit has been designed with the spectator in mind, with 50,000 grandstand seats, all providing excellent views. Those spectators (a total of 100,000 are expected over the race weekend) will get to see the cars heading into the external desert area, before coming back into the oasis-styled infield.

The track gives the driver a unique experience in the way the circuit's width varies at the end of the different straights. This allows for different racing lines, and the 12-corner design is expected to provide at least three genuine overtaking opportunities, which all add to a fantastic race. The lap record for the Sakhir track is held by Michael Schumacher at 1.30.252
