There are some driver concerns about the outer circuit at Bahrain.

There is always someone to complain. But the short length will create some issues. I expect it to be more of a problem in qualifying such as hot laps being inadvertently blocked. I am sure whoever is looking for blue flags to clear a path may be upset, but in a way, traffic issues may generate some interesting racing.

Just split Q1 in two groups, like in IndyCar.

That would be something that could be considered, after all they are heading a bit into the unknown with this outer circuit

It looks like F1 teams are in favor of having GP's in one off or occasional venues to give variety and challange the teams and drivers.

That’s good, as long as places like Monaco or Spa or Silverstone remain locked in. Then we can have more GPs that are worth it

In spite of the simulation tools teams have, I hope that the reality of a new circuit makes modelling a race there a little more difficult than the ones they have already raced at. It would be fun if they could surprise the teams the week of a race and fly them away somewhere without telling them (the FIA could handle visas). The first they know is at the airport. This would only work with no spectators, though.

That would be very cool!

Knew a travel agent who used to do weekend trips like that - no-one knew where they were heading for the next 2 nights.

Could go truly old school on it - just raw garages without all of the current dressing up, might be the best race of the year!
