Formula 1 adjust testing schedule after another drain incident in Bahrain

In response to recurrent drain incidents during pre-season testing in Bahrain, Formula 1 have made alterations to the session timings for the final day.

Red Bull driver Sergio Perez encountered the same loose drain at Turn 11, prompting a substantial delay as race director Niels Wittich orchestrated repair operations. 

Consequently, the session is set to recommence at 11:45 am local time - 08:45 am UK time - and extend until 19:00 pm local time - 16:00 pm UK time. 

This adjustment ensures an uninterrupted session for teams, barring any further disruptions. 

The modifications aim to prioritize safety and optimize testing conditions as teams finalize preparations for the upcoming season.
