The Bahrain International Circuit is a 5.412 km long motor racing circuit designed by Hermann Tilke in Sakhir, Bahrain. It is used by Formula One, as well as GP2, F3, V8 Supercars and various other events. In Formula One, it hosts the Bahrain Grand Prix.

The circuit was modified for 2010, by using the previously-constructed "Endurance Circuit" extension that made the track the second longest on the F1 calendar, at 6.299 km.

This extension was not used after 2010, but due to a violent uprising in the country, the 2011 race was postponed, and placed later in the calendar, before the race organisizers ultimately choose to cancel the race.

The race was run as planned in 2012, with Sebastian Vettel winning the race.

The tenth running of the Bahrain Grand Prix in 2014 marked the 900th Formula One World Championship Grand Prix. To mark this and the tenth Bahrain GP, the race was run as a twilight race under floodlights. It was won by Lewis Hamilton.
