A number of Formula 1’s star drivers arrived in the Kingdom of Bahrain today ahead of this weekend’s 2017 Formula 1 Gulf Air Bahrain Grand Prix
Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) hosts the sporting and entertainment spectacle from Friday to Sunday in Sakhir.
Among those seen arriving at Bahrain International Airport were Red Bull Racing star Max Verstappen, Mercedes ace Valtteri Bottas, Force India’s Esteban Ocon and Renault’s Jolyon Palmer.
They were received upon reaching the island by BIC’s Meet and Greet staff, who assisted them in their arrival formalities and made sure they receive a warm welcome to the country.
Aside from the drivers, Formula 1 personnel and other members of the international racing community continued to arrive in Bahrain.
The stage is set for the third round of this year’s FIA Formula 1 World Championship, and BIC is getting all geared up to once again be the centre of global attention.
This year’s Bahrain Grand Prix will be the event’s 13th edition and fourth as a night race.
