Last time I looked the principality of Monaco wasn't shooting it's own citizens and bringing in the Saudi's to help them.

It would be morally wrong to hold a GP there given the current state of affairs.

Just the FIA showing old Bernie who is calling the shots at the moment. Why is it necessary for FIA to know if the race will go forward by Monday. It should be a Bernie and team concern only.

The US hold races even though they hold prisons illgally for more than 10 years since not 1 have gone to court @Guantanamo Bay.

Since you claim Bahrain killed its own people, i ask you to watch the following on youtube. Just search the following words.

- Protesters Run-Over and attack a police man
- Rioters attack unarmed police in Bahrain protests
- Thugs attack Bahrain University Students
- Video shows protesters, killing police man in BAHRAIN
- Shiites protesters run away after killing policeman
- the truth about shiites protesters.

Then come back to claim Bahrain killed its own people.
Best regards, Abdulla

Bahrain fan. you are making a strong case for NOT going. I hear what you are saying but your words only confirm that their is mistrust and manipulation and corruption going on at this time. A very unsafe environment to be sending in a world wide audience. F1 would be a great platform to further your cause or anothers. My vote is to NOT have the Bahrain race.

All those videos are posted by the same user on yoooooootooooobe with comments disabled. and like Rob01 said, makes just as strong a case for not having the race as the videos filmed from the postesters point of view buddy. Also, click on that users name and look at his home page.

Bahrain needs to handles its own internal issues first before worrying about international sporting events.

so they will let Korea go around the rule book but not bahrain? and who REALLY has the say if they will race? Bernie or the FIA? im with Bernie on this one. they let Korea have their race without a complete facility so why cant they just let Bahrain postpone till the last race?

We can't take a chance sending all the people on these teams, drivers, mechanics, sponsors, tecks and all the fans into a place where even one person could be killed. Knowing the media will be there increases the chance that a nut job will do something stupid. I went to Monaco in 09 and felt safe the whole time I was there and I know that it's not the best track for passing, Kimi did some, but the whole weekend is such an event that we can't afford to loose that. It's one of the crown jewels of racing. Bahrain is just not safe for the circus. I would hate to see something bad happen to our sport

There isnt proof the police shot anyone, you know why? because Police in Bahrain dont carry guns.

all these claims are made up and since i pointed out to them wanting to sacrfice, its meant to sacrifice life to make the Govt in Bahrain look bad and get the world to pressure the ruling family to get kicked out. Thats the goal masterminded by Iran. Im from Bahrain and whats going on here.

Take a look at this video on youtube and tell me its real!
"the truth about shiites protesters"

Look how its taped to be shown as if real bullets were used. Then you see the camera duck for a few seconds then wallah! Blood.

Notice there was no blood before the camera ducks. Its all lies
