Timetable of the 2016 Bahrain Grand Prix

Round two of the 2016 Formula One World Championship - Bahrain Grand Prix - will be held this weekend on the Bahrain International Circuit near Sakhir in the Kingdom of Bahrain.

The Grand Prix of Bahrain marked the first ever round of the FIA Formula 1 Championship to be held in the Middle East.

The 5.412km circuit features two DRS zones. The fastest corner is Turn 13, taken at 185km/h while the slowest is Turn 10 taken at 80 km/h. The key corner is Turn 10, a tricky off-camber, downhill left-hander. It’s important to make a clean exit because the second DRS zone follows.
