While the cold winter months descend on many countries at the beginning and end of a Formula 1 season, tracks like the Bahrain International Circuit still provide the perfect environment for heated racing action. Races here begin with nightfall.
In the middle of the desert, Formula 1 drivers have to fight a mixture of sand and dust particles that could settle on the brake pads, cooling intakes or the gearbox. Wet compound tyres, however, can almost certainly be left at home - with only three to five rainy days a year, a dry race is all but guaranteed.
Lewis Hamilton has already been able to secure five victories in Bahrain. No other driver can claim as many wins at the track. Lewis also shares first place with Sebastian Vettel for the most pole positions at three apiece.
