Star Sports to telecast Bahrain Grand Prix live

MUMBAI: The Formula One feast continues. Race enthusiasts can catch all the action from the Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix, Sakhir, live at 4:45 pm Sunday, 3 April 3 on Star Sports.

Narain Karthikeyan who finished the race in Australia as the

fastest debutant and bettered his performance of Malaysia is at a confident high. Karthikeyan has had a successful debut season to date, finishing the Australian and Malaysian Grand Prix in 15th and 11th position respectively, beating Jordan team mate Tiago Monteiro.


Located in Sakhir, in the southern part of the Kingdom of Bahrain, the US$150 million Bahrain Racing Circuit is all set to stage the second F1 race in the Middle East. After its success last year, the 2005 Bahrain Grand Prix - promises to be bigger, better and a lot more exciting! Sand makes the track slippery off line, but the circuit proved a hit with drivers and fans alike last year, throwing up plenty of passing moves in an eventful and enjoyable race.

The circuit has some long straights and slow speed corners with minimum lift to drag ratio requirement upwards. Although it is still a high down force circuit, this means that minimizing drag is important in Bahrain. It will therefore be interesting to see where all the teams are placed on the starting grid, informs an official release.
