The Outer Track of the Bahrain International Circuit set to be used in this weekend’s Sakhir Grand Prix will create a spectacle unlike any other witnessed in Formula 1 history.

    Standing at 3.5km – just 0.2km more than Monaco – but made up of three flat-out straights joined together by a section of sweeping corners, simulations have predicted lap times in qualifying of around 54 seconds, while because of the track’s short length, the race will run to a full 87 laps.

    Get up to speed with the layout of the Outer Track in the videos above and below, as we prepare for a weekend to remember in Bahrain.
