Additional start lights installed in Bahrain

BAHRAIN INTERNATIONAL CIRCUIT, BAHRAIN - MARCH 28: Start/Finish Straight with lights during the

Following an issue relating to the visibility of the start lights reported by drivers at the rear of the grid in Australia, an additional set of repeater lights has been installed in Bahrain.

These lights, which are situated further back down the grid than the main starting light gantry, will ensure that the race start signal can clearly be seen by all drivers, regardless of grid position.

The Williams duo of George Russell and Robert Kubica and Red Bull’s Pierre Gasly were among those who reported problems seeing the start lights in Melbourne because the increased height of this year’s rear wings meant the car in front obscured their view.
