Simulator lap of new Bahrain circuit

With just a week to go until the Friday practice sessions begin in Bahrain, Red Bull have released a simulator video of the track, including the new section.

Mark Webber talks us through the entire lap, with nice facts as well. While there isn’t a great amount of detail on the new section, Webber does comment that it is “very slow”. Apart from this, it appears narrower from the rest of the track, and looks like it will offer less grip as well.

This doesn’t exactly point towards the “overtaking opportunities” we were told of when the new circuit layout was announced. Still, we should at least wait until we get onboard footage next Friday, and analyse it then.
