Formula 1 breathed a massive sigh of relief when images showed Romain Grosjean climbing out of an inferno as unscathed as he was. He survived what was probably the largest accident in F1 since Robert Kubica in Montreal, leaving the FIA to proudly display the results of years of Safety improvements to the sport. Grosjean will miss this race, but so will the new champion Lewis Hamilton after a positive COVID test. The sport stays at the Bahrain International Circuit for the third double-header in F1 history - although this time we get a new layout. The Outer circuit was one which most fans have been looking forward to ever since Ross Brawn suggested it. For only the second time in F1 history, we are expecting lap times to be under a minute in length. Can anyone go quicker than Niki Lauda's 00:58.790 at Dijon in 1974? The track effectively only has 6 real corners, all of which will put considerable strain on the left-rear tyre. With the abrasive surface forcing some drivers into 3-stop strategies last week, we could see even more stops this weekend. Let's hope this experiment works and we get a stunning race, just no more fireballs. Please. Monza 2.0 is here, it's the SAKHIR GRAND PRIX! First Grand Prix 2020 Number of Laps 87 Circuit Length 3.543km Race Distance 307.995 km Lap Record IDK, but Nekrews51 did a 00:55.788 on his YouTube channel.
