Well we could say this is a test for Uncle Bernie's
sensitivity to the cause of basic human rights..
The best thing for F1 is to completely bypass Bahrain until a stable government accepted by the world community is running the country.
Really for some reason it looks like the Rulers of F1 is tinkering with the stupid idea of staging a race. Bernie and company really have only one road to take, really its simple, when the PEOPLE are
ready and request a F1 event then the time is right...

I posted a couple of months ago on this and my comment was not published. Someone at Crash obviously disagreed with me at the time, but recent events have proved me correct. Bahrain is, shall we say, not a nice place. I know, I have a relative married to a now non-Muslim Arabian. And the track is a reflection of the better facets of the country - hot, dusty, dry, dull and boring.

I'm sure there are a few other countries on the list that do not adhere to particular 'good' human rights.. (not mentioning any names). The country is a political mess, the track is boring, the race is boring and most importantly neither Lewis or his Mummy get a kick out of it.
