Lets face it, it's a boring race, this years regs may help make it slightly more watchable but it's just a vulgar rich man's plaything in the middle of the dessert, it has no character and never will.

Still, plenty of money and thats all Bernie gives a t0ss about

May 13 - Tear gas, live ammo and helicopter gunships used against a crowd of protesters.

May 17 - Police injure protesters during a crackdown. The brother of one of the injured drives his car into the police, injuring nine of them.

"Ready"? Really?? This still hasn't died down and the world is still too busy looking over at Libya to care.

Let's face it, if you can have a race in the USA you can have a race anywhere.

I don't think the Bahrain government has sent agents to Europe to kidnap people, fly them to torture camps, and kill many of them, because that was the findings of a EU investigation.

@gtfo: dont forget about prosecution of doctors for helping injured protestors. Disgusting.

If the race does go ahead Bernie may aswell superglue the £/$/€ signs to his eyes and devil horns to his head.
