BAHRAIN, BAHRAIN - NOVEMBER 29: Kimi Raikkonen of Finland driving the (7) Alfa Romeo Racing C39

There was rain in the air for last week's Bahrain Grand Prix – so is it the same story as Formula 1 takes on the 'outer loop' of the Bahrain International Circuit in December for the Sakhir Grand Prix?

Having said that, there is a small chance of light scattered showers on race day - but it's not certain when it might fall, meaning that it could miss the race entirely, if indeed it does rain.
