The weather is set to worsen in Bahrain with another sandstorm on its way in time for day two of F1 pre-season testing. Strong winds caused trouble for the drivers in Friday's afternoon session and the gusts are likely to be stronger on Saturday.

Gusts in excess of 50mph is expected to stay throughout the day. Visibility will be poor too so there is the possibility that the session may be stopped or teams may opt to not go out on track if they cannot learn anything in the conditions.

Sunday's weather outlook is much better with wind speeds dropping below 30mph and a brighter afternoon for when the drivers start to really push the cars.
