One of the newest stops on the F1 betting circuit the Bahrain Grand Prix was one of the first major sporting events held in this part of world. This year Bahrain will play host to the event for the fifth straight year and if the F1 betting history is any indication this should be a great race.
F1 betting fans first got a taste of the Bahrain Grand Prix in April 2004. The race has always the third event on the Grand Prix calendar except for 2006. That positions it nicely at an exciting point on the F1 betting calendar when drivers have yet to emerge from the pack. And geographically it’s a perfect F1 betting location as it’s roughly half way between the Far East, which hosts the first two F1 betting events, and Europe where the F1 betting tour heads after Bahrain.
The track is 3.3 miles long and is a real beast compared to other softer F1 betting courses. Its layout is superb and definitely tests the driving skills of the pilots. Its mix of long straights and ridiculous and multiple hair pin corners make it one of the most challenging F1 betting courses on tour. To win here will take all the skill an F1 betting driver has.
The crazy looking grandstands and the thoroughly modern design of the grounds also make this a very distinct F1 betting event. Another interesting element at this F1 betting event is the fact that alcohol is prohibited in Bahrain and as such winners of the F1 betting event spray rose water drink on each rather than champagne.
Spaniard Fernando Alonso has won here more than any other human on the planet and will looking for his third F1 betting victory here in five years this season. Last year he was thwarted in his quest for three straight Bahrain Grand Prix victories by Brazilian Felipe Massa who charged to the F1 betting victory for Ferrari. As the racing field shapes up this season, it could very well be these two fighting it out once again for the F1 betting title.
