Live Event Coverage

Free Practice from Bahrain // Formula 1 World Championship 2014

Published by Christine

So far, reports from the desert have indicated the weather is cooler than anticipated, and with a night race on the cards, it could be an unusual weekend for the drivers. However, teams spent two weeks in Bahrain during pre-season testing, so they should be more prepared for this event than the previous two. Conditions may be tricky, and reliability will continue to be a key concern, but we've got our first chance to see Friday drivers in action, so seat time isn't as crucial as it has been. Three practice sessions await our drivers as they prepare for the Bahrain Grand Prix.
