F1 Bahrain Grand Prix weather forecast - Cooler temperatures in desert ahead of season opener

The Bahrain Grand Prix kicks off the new F1 season on Saturday as the new campaign kicks off in the desert.

Formula 1 heads into the mammoth 2024 season with a trip to Sakhir, the same venue in which the teams were gearing up for the upcoming season during pre-season testing in February.

Max Verstappen qualified on pole, but Charles Leclerc could have gone fastest were it not for a strategic blunder (never heard that before!) from Ferrari.

The unpredictability of the first race of the season is something that F1 fans crave, but will the weather also throw an extra curveball into the mix?

Bahrain Grand Prix weather forecast

Saturday

The first grand prix of the season takes place on a Saturday this year, in a move brought about by the holy month of Ramadan beginning on Sunday 10th March, the day that the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix was originally scheduled for.

The strong winds present during the first two days of the event will have abated by Saturday evening local time, with the race set to start in cool night conditions. Temperatures will be around 20 degrees Celsius for the start of the race.

Once again, there is a less than five per cent chance of precipitation during the course of the race.
