The new Formula 1 season is just around the corner but before the opening round of the year, teams have three days of on-track action to prepare for the campaign ahead.

Testing will take place from February 21 - 23 at the Bahrain International Circuit, which will also host the first round of the campaign one week later.

However, due to the stable weather in the region, there will be no drama when it comes to the conditions during the three days.

Bahrain has a desert climate and temperatures during the summer months can reach 40 degrees, which is one of the main reasons why it has an early-season slot on the calendar.

Stable conditions

According to our friends at WeerOnline.nl, the temperature will not come close to the maximum recorded during the year.

Across the three days, it's expected that the temperature will rise to 22 or 23 degrees Celcius.

Despite the milder temperature, a strong UV index of 8 is expected which can burn a person's skin within 10 minutes.

It will mostly be sunny with a few clouds passing over the circuit during the sessions, while sea breeze will provide some cooling.

The sessions will start in daylight however by the time the chequered flag waves, darkness will have fallen upon the track.
