Bahrain GP weather update: What will the conditions be like in Sakhir?

How will weather conditions in Bahrain affect the F1 race on Sunday?


Max Verstappen leads an all Red Bull front row for the 2023 Bahrain GP, and after a thrilling qualifying session, what effect will the weather conditions have on the F1 race in Sakhir?

Both Ferrari cars and Fernando Alonso in the Aston Martin will be looking to usurp the Red Bull pair of Verstappen and Sergio Perez to take the first win of the 2023 F1 season.

Red Bull are favourites, but a mix of the right strategy and tyre degradation caused by the temperatures and humidity in Bahrain could have a bearing on the race.

Bahrain GP weather

As you would expect, the likelihood of rain appearing for a desert race is as close to zero as it can be, with temperatures set to be around 26 degrees Celsius for lights out at 18:00 local time.

The heat will ebb off slightly throughout the race, with a low forecast temperature of around 24 degrees Celsius.
