Bahrain could host two F1 races in 2020

There could be two back-to-back Grand Prix in Bahrain, according to a draft schedule for the remainder of the current season.

If it comes to fruition, there would be races at Sakhir on the weekends of November 27 to 29 and December 4 to 6.

The dates have not been confirmed by Formula 1 and race organisers yet.

This year’s Bahrain Grand Prix was originally scheduled to take place between March 19 and 22, but was put on hold between due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

According to a report in Autosport, the proposed Bahrain races would mark the 17th and 18th rounds of the revamped 19-event championship, which would end in Abu Dhabi the following week.

Should this version of the calendar be approved, Bahrain could be one of three destinations to host two Grand Prix races this year, the others being Austria and Great Britain.

Meanwhile, also taking place in Bahrain during its second Formula 1 weekend could be rounds of the FIA Formula 2 Championship and FIA Formula 3 Championship.
