After a winter fraught by wet test days the teams will be relieved to find there’s no surprises in the Bahrain Grand Prix weather forecast.
All three days are expected to be dry with temperatures slightly above 30C throughout.
The Bahrain International Circuit is quite exposed and drivers are used to coping with windy conditions at the track. The wind is expected to blow at around 8-9kph from the south, which although not that strong may help the cars pick up some speed along the main straight, making those crucial decisions about gear ratios even trickier.
With lots of dry running forecast for practice expect the teams to get plenty of running in to make up for lost time in testing.
