F1 to run second Bahrain race on track's super-fast 'Outer' track

Formula 1 set for sub-60 second lap as Bahrain outer circuit confirmed F1 to run second Bahrain race on track's super-fast 'Outer' track

F1 predict that a lap for qualifying will take just 55 seconds, while in race trim the cars will still be lapping at under a minute a lap.

Formula 1's current season has numerous doubleheaders, and Bahrain's global circuit will also organize two races this season, thus, the officials at the circuit have proposed adjustment for the second race.

On Friday in Belgium it was confirmed that F1 will race on the Outer Track for the Sakhir Grand Prix on 4-6 December.

The next race on 6 December will be known as the Sakhir Grand Prix and held on a smaller, 3.5-kilometre (2.2-mile) outer circuit which has never been used before for global racing.

He added: "The great advantage with the Bahrain circuit is that both layouts have FIA Grade 1 status so it seemed the obvious time to progress with an alternative layout".

It was also announced that qualifying will be held at a later time to take place at night in the Arab state, mirroring F1's previous night event in Singapore where sessions are held under the lights.

The track has just 11 corners, as opposed to the 15 on the main track, where a time of 1:27.866 earned pole last season.

The next race on December 6 will be known as the Sakhir Grand Prix and held on a smaller, 3.5-kilometer (2.2-mile) outer circuit which has never been used before for global racing.

'We assessed a number of options for the alternative circuit layout and concluded the outer circuit will provide the best alternative and will provide a new challenge for all the teams and entertain all our fans with high speeds and fast lap times'.

Ross Brawn thinks it would have been wrong for Formula 1 to have wasted the opportunity it had to race on Bahrain's "almost oval" outer loop this year.

"The new regulations, cost cap, Concorde and the locations we race are all designed to come together to create fierce on-track racing in exciting places".

As per Formula 1, with such a short track - the second shortest on the calendar after Monaco - the Sakhir GP will be an 87-lap race to ensure the 305 km official minimum distance is met - that's the most racing laps of any Grand Prix this year.
