About Bahrain Grand Prix

The Bahrain Grand Prix is a Formula One Championship race in Bahrain.

The first race took place at the Bahrain International Circuit on 4 April 2004. It made history as the first Formula One Grand Prix to be held in the Middle East.

The race is usually the third race of the Formula One calendar. However, in 2006, Bahrain swapped places with the traditional opener, the Australian Grand Prix, which was pushed back to avoid a clash with the Commonwealth Games.

In 2014, the race was held as a night event under floodlights to commemorate the tenth anniversary of the first staging of the Bahrain Grand Prix. In doing so, it became the second Formula One night race after the Singapore Grand Prix in 2008.

The 2016 Bahrain Grand Prix was won by Mercedes’ Nico Rosberg. He did not compete in the 2017 Bahrain Grand Prix as he had retired after the 2016 season.
