In Bahrain this will be the penultimate Grand Corix Grand Prix in 2020. Lewis Hamilton, who is missing in Bahrain due to a positive corona test, has already been awarded a world title. Verstappen can still finish second in the final position. He then has to pass Bottas in the stand. The Mercedes Finn will start from pole position at Sakhir Grand Prix.
Verstappen is expecting a tough race in Bahrain, where the Formula 1 race will be held for the second week in a row. This time the drivers ride the so-called Exterior Track, a short lap with many straights and a few curves. They take less than a minute to complete one round.
Verstappen also has to deal with Russell, a Williams driver who has so far replaced Hamilton with verve. He takes second place at the start on Sunday. The Sakhir Grand Prix is a local evening race starting at 6.10 pm Dutch time.
