Its right F1 doesn't get involved with the politics and religion of a country but as much of a fan of the sport as I am, I have to agree with Ross Brawn that you can't expect the teams to work like that with such a short break before heading back to the factories again for 2012

I believe that a team can miss one grand prix during the year and not be penalized. Maybe the teams should use that card if it's put on the schedule. For sure if Vettel has it wrapped up by then.

"and question marks about F1's image should it choose to effectively endorse a regime that has reportedly been oppressing its own people."

What about a country that according to an EU report kidnapped more than 100 from Europe, took them to torture camps, then proceeded to torture and kill them?

That's the USA, a country that makes Bahrain look like a fluffy kitten.
