Welcome to qualifying day in Sakhir for the Bahrain Grand Prix, the third round of the 2007 FIA Formula One World Championship, which follows hard on the heels of the Malaysian race.

Once again the forecast is for an ambient temperature high between 29 and 30 degrees Celsius, with some cloud and the odd isolated shower which is unlikely to affect proceedings at the track. A high of 29 degrees is still expected for race day, with plenty of sun.

The 5.412 kilometre (3.363 mile) circuit is unchanged since Fernando Alonso won for Renault here last year, and it’s worth noting that the winners of the three Grands Prix staged here so far have gone on to win each season’s title.

The race will run over 57 laps or 308.238 kilometres (191.539 miles) and will start at 1430 hours local time, which is 1130 GMT.
