Throughout the Bahrain Grand Prix weekend, drivers have been complaining of heavy winds gusting around the Sakhir circuit.

The most exposed parts of the track are Turns 4 and 13, where cross-winds have caught more than one driver out.

Of course, a cross-wind through the right-handers means a head-wind down the pit-straight which is good for overtaking opportunities, but the gusty winds are set to die down by race-time, according to RacingNews365's weather partner WeerOnline.

Conditions of 19 degrees Celsius is expected for the 6pm local time start, with the wind coming from the north-east - making it a tail-wind through Turn 4 and a cross-wind along the pit and back straights.
