The Sahir track, home of the Bahrain Grand Prix, is running preparations from this Thursday until Saturday for the 2023 Formula One World Championship, which will be the shortest pre-season preparation for the longest season in history.
The World Championship, which starts next week, also at a circuit outside Manama, will consist of 23 races for the first time in the 74-year history of Formula One. Ten teams will compete in them. Red Bull and Max Verstappen will defend their titles. Just three days to prepare.
The Sakhir, which measures five thousand 412 metres and 15 corners, has made its debut on the calendar for 2004 and will be responsible for giving drivers rehearsals before the championship, which kicks off at the same stage on March 5 and finishes on November 26 in Abu Dhabi.
No final team line-ups have been announced at the moment, but this is expected to happen shortly.
