How Fast do F1 Cars go in Bahrain? The key details as the inaugural race of the 2021 season will be held at the Bahrain International circuit.
The Bahrain International circuit organized its first Formula 1 race in 2004; at that time, it was middle-east’s step into the world of F1, and on the present date, three countries from the region would be hosting Grand Prix, including Bahrain (Saudi Arabia and UAE).
Additionally, it will be this season’s inaugural race as Australia pushed its slot late into the season over COVID-19 concerns. Last year, the venue organized two races.
One was named the usual Bahrain Grand Prix, and the second was the Sakhir Grand Prix, which introduced the outer segment of the circuit, thus maximizing the straights into the race.
This year, it would be hosting only one race, and the normal race track dimensions will be used. Hence, the Sportsrush would be revealing how fast the car can go at the circuit and where.
How Fast do F1 Cars go in Bahrain?
The Bahrain Internation circuit is a state of the art track with modern technologies that enable drivers to push their cars to the maximum during the Grand Prix events.
The five km long track’s longest flat-out section is approximately 1.2 km long, and this is where the speed of the car can be pushed to the limit. The maximum speed recorded by an F1 car over here is 329.6kph, as disclosed by the RaceFans.
The car limit on this track is undoubtedly impressive. This track has set its downforce level medium, which might further degrade to a lower level as FIA has imposed downforce restrictions to the teams due to the safety measure.
Yet, the teams can break this timing with the latest innovations made every year, but will it be this season? It remains to be seen.
