Among those who have already arrived are Lando Norris of McLaren, Sergio Perez of Red Bull Racing and George Russell of Williams.

Meanwhile, competitors in the FIA Formula 2 Championship returned to action at BIC today for their second of three days of pre-season testing.

For both F1 and F2, the Bahrain tests are their first chance to get an indication of how competitive their latest cars are ahead of their first races of the season, making for a crucial period at “The Home of Motorsport in the Middle East” this week. F1 and F2 kick off their 2021 campaigns at the Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix from March 26 to 28.

In F2 testing today, Christian Lundgaard of ART Grand Prix clocked the fastest overall time with a lap of one minute 41.697. The Dane posted his best during the morning session.

The fastest time during the afternoon was 1:42.185, registered by Dan Ticktum of Carlin. Ticktum’s best lap was fourth-fastest on today’s combined timesheet.

Bent Viscaal of Trident and Marcus Armstrong of Dams both had quicker laps, with each coming in the morning. Viscaal’s mark was 1:42.028, just marginally ahead of Armstrong’s best of 1:42.038.
