BAHRAIN GRAND PRIX

The Bahrain Grand Prix was the first Formula 1 race to be staged in the Middle East, as part of the government's desire to promote tourism. For the F1 circus it was a first opportunity to enjoy all the clichés of being in the desert, including the strange sight of a camel in the back of a pick-up truck. For the engineers, there was the more serious task of working out how to keep sand out of the engine and other components, although in recent years, a sophisticated track cleaning machine has meant this is less of a problem. The Sakhir Circuit has been the only venue for this race, although they did try a longer track layout one year, but abandoned it as unsuccessful.

"Now we can fight!"

What a different two weeks can make, or rather what a difference two weeks...
