Video: Broadbent tests F1 at the Bahrain Outer Loop

Sim Racer Jimmy Broadbent has test-driven the newest addition to the F1 2020 calendar – the Bahrain Outer loop.

Using the RaceSimStudio Formula Hybrid 2020, Jimmy battles the AI around an 8-lap sprint of the circuit to try and simulate what the racing could be like.

The circuit uses the majority of the first sector before darting off down the layout used in 2010 then rejoining the current layout at the penultimate corner taking the perimeter routes.

Laptimes are easily sub-one minute in race running with qualifying laps likely to be around the 53-second mark.
