There look set to be grave repercussions following a 'misunderstanding' that has led to an embarrassing breakdown in political relations between Bulgaria and Abu Dhabi over the mooted construction of an F1 circuit

As a bulgarian I can say that we will see a city on the moon before a Formula 1 race in Bulgaria. We all saw what the WRC round turned around to be - epic fail. So... We have a contract for MotoGP for 2012, and I don't even want to imagine what the penalties will be when FIM understand that there is no track built or able to host event of such level... It's all one big joke. All of us motorcycle riders dream about a nice track where we could ride around with no traffic, but that's in our dreams : )...

These unsubtle blackmail letters and attempts to embarrass Abu Dhabi potentates wouldn't possibly be the work of Russians anxious not to see Bulgaria getting into bed with Arab backers and thereby seeing their influence diminishing...

Would it?

So which dim brain wants to consider yet another plastic slot racing track when the real driving circuits are in danger of being bypassed as the little poison dwarf cannot scew enough wonga from those organisers.

The last thing Bulgaria needs in a race track, why not look after the poor peasants that have to live in the most attrocious conditions

Well I think that the company is at fault for providing wrong information about themselves. No matter how hard they try to deny it now, it is very clear that they initially presented themselves as state-related people and only a UAE investigation would clear this out. I think the company would have never mind the news that they will help build the F1 but they had big troubles with the fake shiek title which I would guess is a big problem for them back home.

I would like to warn everyone thinking of cooperating with any person or entity from Abu Dhabi or UAE to make advantage of the lessons learned from the EABG-Gate. The UAE government should put an end to all those speculations and shadows and investigate the case directly and take the necessary actions against EABG and their CEO Raid Abu Hudra otherwise this story will devastate the business statue of UAE in the global community.
