Bahrain Grand Prix F1 History
The Bahrain Formula 1 Grand Prix has been in the news over the past few seasons for reasons other than sporting achievements. The political unrest that followed the Arab Spring revolutions of 2011 was compounded by violent clashes between pro-reform and democracy groups and military forces, which led to the death of activists and calls for the cancellation of the Bahrain Grand Prix.Formula 1 chief Bernie Ecclestone was forced to call of the race, which was scheduled for early on in the 2011 season. Efforts to reinstate the race in October failed. However, the 2012 race was held, despite an attack on mechanics of the Force India team.This year, Ecclestone has been quoted as confirming the 2013 event. The sport’s administrator said he had no information that suggested there would be any security problems and explained: “Somebody who actually lives there came to see me yesterday and said everything’s very normal.” The race was cancelled in 2011 due to the “Arab Spring” protests in Bahrain, & the 2012 race went ahead despite significant opposition from anti-government activists.This year, there’s reports of isolated disorder, but F1 chief Bernie Ecclestone believes the weekend will be trouble-free. They shall see.
Kimi Raikkonen, Sebastian Vettel & Fernando Alonso go in to the race with win apiece, while the Mercedes of Lewis Hamilton & Nico Rosberg have shown some promise as well.All the build-up has one time again been against a backdrop of political turmoil in the Gulf state, but the teams’ & drivers’ focus will be on what happens on the circuit. The Bahrain International Circuit is a 5.412km, 15-turn track built right in the middle of the desert. This means teams and drivers will have to be wary of changing wind speeds, as a drastic shift could affect the car’s handling. More importantly, the wind does tend to blow sand on to the track, which means racing lines are generally at a premium.Ferrari have a good track record at this circuit, with the most number of wins, so far, by any team. The Italians have four, two of which have gone to Felipe Massa.
The Brazilian, Alonso’s team mate, will be confident of another strong showing here, to bolster his reputation after a poor 2012.The Italians will come into this race as favourites, after a dominant performance in China. However, the basis for much of that dominance, it could be argued, was Pirelli’s soft compound tyre. And now that the French company has withdrawn that particular option, it will be interesting to see if the scarlet cars are still as fast.Expect a strong race from Red Bull, who had a disappointing weekend in China. Australian Mark Webber faces a grid penalty after a collision in the race (as does Sauber’s Esteban Gutierrez) and he will be especially keen to make up for lost points.Last year, the first seven races had seven different winners. With different drivers having stood at the top of the podium so far in 2013, could they be in for a similarly unpredictable start to the season.Much will be contingent on who can get the most out of the tyres in the hot, dry conditions.McLaren are improving; Felipe Massa is a man reborn, & they cannot rule out drivers like Mark Webber or Romain Grosjean either.The 2013 Formula one world championship is back in action, barely a few days after Ferrari & Fernando Alonso sealed an emphatic win at the Chinese Grand Prix. The Spaniard drove a faultless race at the Shanghai International Circuit, capitalising on the pace & durability Pirelli’s soft compound tyres gave his automobile, relative to his rivals.

The Bahrain International Circuit is, after all, in the middle of a desert. So expect a scorching weekend.Weather forecasts indicate temperatures in the mid to high 30C range, with an expected peak of 37C at around 3pm local time, which is around when the second session will come to an end. Early morning temperatures (first session is at 10am local time) are expected to be between 30C and 31C.Wind speeds will vary from an expected 13km/h to 21km/h and will generally approach from a north-north-easterly direction, which means drivers are likely to encounter some resistance coming down the back straight – between turns 13 and 14 and leading to the last corner of the lap.
What the drivers say:
Lotus’s Romain Grosjean: “I have good memories after a strong race there last year. Our car worked well and we seemed to like the heat so it’s a race I’m looking forward to. [Bahrain is] a track I knew from before Formula 1 and it has characteristics that I like in a circuit: some big braking into certain corners, some good change of direction with the double-left in the middle of the race track, and it all flows quite nicely.”
Mercedes’s Lewis Hamilton: “The Bahrain circuit is a real challenge, particularly for the tyres with overheating and also the sand on the track, but this helps to make it unique. The layout has a great combination of fast, slow and medium corners, which make it tough for the drivers and the car, so it will be a true test for us. I can’t wait to get back in the car and see what we can do.”
Red Bull’s Sebastian Vettel: “The corners can fool you and lead to errors because the track is very wide and quite often the apex of the corner is not obvious. For example, the apex of Turn 14 is hidden as you approach it.”
Sauber’s Nico Hulkenberg: “I’m looking forward to the race. In 2010 I drove my first Formula 1 Grand Prix there. I like the track, and there is always a ‘One Thousand and One Nights’ atmosphere in the paddock.”
McLaren’s Jenson Button: “The Sakhir circuit is a place where the grip levels can be quite hard to anticipate, and where the wind direction can play quite an important part in determining the car’s balance. The wind can affect top speed and cornering performance, so practice will be more important than ever in enabling us to take the best overall package into qualifying and the race.”
The race was set up for the battle between the sport’s greatest driver, Michael Schumacher, & the man who appeared poised to inherit his mantle, Alonso. It did not disappoint.The 2006 Bahrain Grand Prix was memorable for reasons. was the superbly executed race by then reigning world champion Fernando Alonso, who took victory, & the other was Kimi Raikonnen’s fabulous drive, rising 19 places to claim the last podium place.Qualifying fourth, Alonso quickly moved up to second in his Renault on the first lap but pole sitter Michael Schumacher had gradually began to pull away. However, the race-winning moment for Alonso came at the second set of pit stops when the Spaniard came out of the pit lane side by side with Schumacher. Alonso kept up the pace with Schumacher before making his move, pulling ahead of the former world champion & holding on to secure victory.
