The 2018 Formula One season continues this weekend as the second round takes place at the Bahrain International Circuit in Sakhir.
Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel was victorious here last year.
In scenes similar to this year’s opener in Melbourne, Vettel looked unable to match the pace of Mercedes’ Valtteri Bottas and Lewis Hamilton for much of the weekend, only to claim a shock triumph.
With a first and third place two weeks ago, Ferrari tops the Constructors’ standings with 40 points, 18 clear of second place Mercedes.
All five sessions – practice, qualifying and the race – will be shown live on Channel 4 and Sky Sports F1.
Qualifying starts at 4.00pm, while the race goes off at 4.10pm UK time.
