This year Bahrain will be organizing the first Grand Prix of Formula 1, and taking on from last year, the two races over there presented one of the most haunting and memorable moments of F1 2020.
From Romain Grosjean’s horrific crash to Sergio Perez first win, it actually set the course for 2021, as that win maybe earned the Mexican his Red Bull spot.

This year Bahrain wasn’t meant to be the first race of the year, but Australia postponing its slot pushed the middle east nation at the top of the pecking order.
While we are talking about the upcoming race, as the excitement is all around for the 2021 season, where three drivers would be making their debuts, the Sportsrush will reveal the key elements of the track.
How many laps in F1 Bahrain race and the track details
As per Formula 1’s guidelines, there are certain criteria every race has to meet, and the most important one is the overall length of the race; the F1 races are targetted to be 305 KM long.
And the Bahrain circuit length is 5.412 KM long; therefore, every Bahrain GP is raced for 57 laps, which takes the overall length of the race to 308.238 km.
Also, to keep in mind, this race must be completed within the two-hour-long time frame sanctioned by F1. On the other hand, the Bahrain circuit also has an outer track, which was opened last year to accommodate the Sakhir GP.
After opening that sector, the overall circuit length dropped to 3.543 km, taking the per lap timing to less than a minute. Also, it drastically added 30 laps more to create an 87 lap long race, with the overall length of the race to 307.995 km.
