The Sakhir Grand Prix was the penultimate race of the 2020 Formula One season and took place in Bahrain, the week after the Bahrain Grand Prix itself.
Like the Bahrain Grand Prix, the Sakhir Grand Prix was held at the Bahrain International Circuit. Unlike the Bahrain Grand Prix however, which uses the GP circuit, this race used the outer circuit. Both share much of the same track however after turn 4, the outer circuit tracks the outside of the complex before rejoining the straight to the south before turning back into the home straight.
The outer circuit is almost 2 kilometres shorter than the main circuit and will be raced over 30 more laps. As a result, the Sakhir Grand Prix had some of the fastest lap times and highest average speeds ever recorded in an F1 race.
