After a two-month hiatus the 2020 FIA Formula 2 Championship season resumes this weekend on the Bahrain International Circuit. The Bahraini circuit will host two events on back-to-back weekends but using different track layouts. The Bahrain Grand Prix taking place on 28-29 November will use the well-known 5.412km layout with an all-new high-speed track to make its first appearance on 5-6 December.
Brazilian Guilherme Samaia has previous experience on Bahrain from preseason testing and will try to translate it into positive results this weekend. “I’m looking forward to be back on track after this long break since Sochi. I used this time to rest and digest a lot of information. I feel positive for these last two rounds in Bahrain, aiming to finish the season in a high”, says the Brazilian.
Bahrain always features high temperatures – slightly lower at the end of the year- and with its characteristic succession of corners is one of the toughest circuits of the calendar on brakes. Besides, due to the track is in a desert, it is always at risk of being coated in fine sand and this factor has a massive impact in grip levels. At the same time, there is a very remarkable improvement throughout the weekend as track time goes on.
Adrián Campos, Team Principal of Campos Racing, says: “Bahrain marks the final sprint of the 2020 season with two consecutive race weekends there. It is probably the most challenging season we never experienced considering under the circumstances in which it is taking place. We are expecting to finish the season in style with some nice results”.
Free practice and qualifying sessions take place on Friday at 10.35 and 14.15 respectively. Saturday’s feature race is scheduled at 10.10 with Sunday’s sprint race getting underway at 11.00. All times are CET.
