It is outrageous that it is still even been considered for this year & if fact for the next few years
After the outright brutality the government (with the aid of other governments) has shown towards the people
This race should be off until they can show that they have even a modicum of respect for human rights

It puts shame on Formula 1, the FIA, and all involved that Bahrain is being considered still, friends that live in the state say it's an ongoing disgusting situation.

In addition with so many other countries desperately trying to get a Grand Prix Bahrain would really not be missed.

Dont worry Bahrain fans - once the uprisers have been shot/imprisoned and order resumed then the owners will present the FIA with a hideous sack of cash and all will be forgotten.

No that money is the important thing in F1...

Fans don't want it.
Teams don't want.
Don't think the FIA really wants it.

Bernie wants it.

So we'll probably get it despite the chaos of rescheduling the event will have on the teams, ROC etc etc

It's getting embarrassing.

I agree with all of you but fear that Stuart may be right. As far as Bernie's considered it's probably just a matter of two things: how well they can sweep this under the carpet and how much cash they'll offer. I definitely don't think it's ruled out but I sure hope it won't happen - also for the sake of FOM's PR people... they'll have to come up something special to justify this. :S

Why should we care! Let the regime kill all the pro-democracy supporters in Bahrain. Peaceful or not, don't care. It is all about the race and the BIG party the shiekhs through every year. We can give the regime a hand in killing the peaceful pro-democarcy protestors, in case it needs it.

Time to move on let the people of Bahrain solve this
they can and will. What they don't need is a aggroup
of money junkies interfering trying to score a
buck. I say again, not surprised what some people will do for money..
That money $40m, Forgetabout-it..Just chump change.
Right Bernie?
