Formula 1 Bahrain Grand Prix

26th Mar keyboard_arrow_right 28th Mar 2021


The Bahrain Grand Prix is a Formula One race held in Sakhir, 30 Km south of Bahrain’s capital Manama. In 2004, it made history as the first Formula One Grand Prix to be held in the Middle East, and was given the award for the "Best Organized Grand Prix" that year by the FIA. To commemorate its tenth anniversary, the 2014 race was held as a night race under floodlights. The Bahrain Grand Prix thus became the second Formula One night race after the Singapore Grand Prix. The circuit’s varying width at the end of different straights provides drivers with diverse racing lines which combined with its 15-corner design leads to multiple overtaking opportunities. Visit the Bahrain Grand Prix and experience this wonderful island country of sunshine, sand and sea!

Ticket info




Main Grandstand

Experience some of the most exciting moments of one of the season’s hottest venues. Overseeing the starting line, the main grandstand offers a great view of the start and finish of the race, pre-grid action, pit-lane activity and the podium. The main grandstand offers distant views of the majority of the track; spectators also have access to three giant screens

Turn 1

On the edge of the track’s first corner, the Turn 1 grandstand is a thrilling place to watch the Grand Prix. With overtaking opportunities for the drivers, Turn 1 guarantees electrifying moments. Likewise, the stand offers a more than decent view of bends 2 and 3, and a giant screen to follow the rest of the race.


Located opposite Turns 2 and 3, it offers a view of the very exciting Turn 1, Turn 9 and Turn 10, and the back straight (on the opposite side of the track).


The Batelco grandstand brings fantastic panoramic views of over 60% of the track with a variety of sections from straight lines to tricky turns, including the famous "desert loops". The right-hand hairpin, Turn 8, offers great overtaking opportunities as cars are forced to brake heavily.  A giant screen is available opposite the grandstand.

Victory Grandstand

Fashioned into two separate grandstands, the Victory complex offers views of the last section of the track. Witness the drivers ‘composure as they maneuver their way through this double right-hander and storm towards the finish line. Seats in the Victory Grandstand also provide a decent view of the back straight and the double apex turn (Turn 11).
