Sandstorm hits Bahrain

A sandstorm has welcomed the world of formula one to Bahrain.

As the sport left Shanghai and headed for the Persian Gulf's island Kingdom, the local meteorological bureau warned of high winds and the risk of a thick sand haze.

Indeed, on Monday, visibility was poor at the Sakhir circuit and the track, paddock and surrounding roads were covered in sand.

But the conditions are not believed to have caused any flight delays, as was the case amid severe sandstorms a fortnight ago, for the thousands of F1 arrivals.
