Peace in the middle east. Never going to happen. If Bernie continues to sign these tracks it's him that will pay the price for the Constant unrest. I think every team on the grid recieves mid east money. That should explain why no one wants to step forward and be the one that cancels the event. Even Todt's son gets a load of cash from the mid east. I'll give them a clue. There hasn't been peace in the mideast for over a thousand years.

I think the FIA are mad if they go ahead with this race,why can't they just give up with it instead of keep holding on just in case all the time,this has been going on for so long now that they don't deserve to stage it now,give the race to another country who does not behave in such awful ways.

Who's willing to bet that they gonna shove that date so many times as possible till the end of the year even though it's still a warzone on 1 May?

It happened with the Korea inspection date last year so why coudn't they do it now?

Sorry a bit off topic but Crash is behind. Bernie has said that the FIA should be handed the rules from the teams and himself. FIA should only police the rules handed to them outside of safety. This is going to get sticky as I think that FOTA and Bernie are looking for someone else to police the series if FIA keeps adding all these green and bogus ideas. He said that the FIA is a joke. Too bad he didn't think this way when Max was in charge.
