And after some bleary-eyed starts to follow the action over the opening three rounds of 2012, the Gulf nation's closer proximity to Europe means your anti-social F1-watching hours are a thing of the past - well, for the next few months at least - as the season really begins to get into full swing after a thrilling start.

The live action from Sakhir's Bahrain International Circuit gets underway on Sky Sports F1 HD on Friday with our coverage of Practice 1 on air at 7.45am for a 8am session start, with the team back on screen for Practice 2 at 11.45am.

Saturday is a similar drill, with Practice 3 live from 8.45am before our hour-long build up to Qualifying starts at 11am.

Race day begins with our usual 90 minutes of build up from 11.30am with the red lights on the fourth round of the season - and first at the Bahrain International Circuit since 2010 - going off at 1pm.
