F1 Bahrain GP 2023 a truly global event with drivers flying the flags of 33 nations

The elite of international motorsport have descended upon the Kingdom of Bahrain for the sold-out Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix 2023, with drivers flying the flags of no less than 33 nations from across five continents.

This weekend’s F1 spectacle is set to be a truly global event as nearly 90 racers are set to hit the track at “The Home of Motorsport in the Middle East” from Friday to Sunday (3 to 5 March).

F1 boasts 20 of the world’s biggest motor racing superstars, while there will be 22 competing in the FIA Formula 2 Championship, 29 in the FIA Formula 3 Championship, and another 18 in the Porsche Sprint Challenge Middle East.

The majority of the drivers are coming from Europe, representing countries including Great Britain, Finland, the Netherlands, France, Spain, Monaco, Denmark, Germany, Norway, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Switzerland, Estonia, Sweden, Italy, Bulgaria and Poland.

North America boasts drivers from the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Barbados, while South America sees competitors from Brazil, Argentina and Colombia.

There are also drivers from Australia, while Asia is being represented by contenders from Japan, Thailand, China, India, Israel, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Bahrain.

The host nation is being represented on track by its very own Shaikh Salman bin Rashid Al Khalifa, a talented racer with many years of experience, who will be competing in the Porsche Sprint Challenge Middle East.

Shaikh Salman excelled in the British Formula Three Championship earlier in his career and was the 2010/2011 champion of the one-make, BIC-based Porsche series, when it was known as the Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge Middle East.

This season marks Shaikh Salman’s return to competitive circuit racing after being away for over eight years.

The F1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix 2023 opens the new FIA F1 World Championship this weekend and it will be the 19th edition of the world’s famous desert F1 race.

Tickets for the race weekend have completely sold out, and fans are in for a treat with three days of top-class motorsport being complemented by plenty of entertaining attractions that include roaming acts, stage shows, carnival rides, kids’ activities, and back-to-back concerts featuring A-list artists DJ Snake and Craig David.
