History

Bahrain’s bid to host the event had to fight off competition from Egypt, Lebanon and the United Arab Emirates. The first Bahrain Grand Prix took place in April, 2004, becoming the first Formula One Grand Prix to be hosted in the Middle East. The first Grand Prix in 2004 was won by the German driver Michael Schumacher then followed by the Spanish giant Fernando Alonso who took the title in 2005 and became the first driver to retain the crown in 2006. For the 2010 season, Bahrain was the season opener and Formula One cars drove the full 6.299 km “Endurance Circuit” to celebrate F1’s ‘diamond jubilee’. Fernando Alonso is currently the leader of the Bahrain Grand Prix with a total of 3 repeat victories.
