guys i think you dont see the full picture as you are only supporting the oppositions, what is really happened in bahrain is that they have started blocking the roads, killing poeple, attacking police and civilians, also they were dealing with the Iranian toman as a currency, do you relly wanna support poeple who are supported by Hiz allah (the torrorist group) guys you have to really think before saying bad **** about bahrain and imagine all of this happened in your country, what would you do.

@ ali not sure what your argument is anti protestors?
if so a different side to the argument is always interesting, western media seldom gives out all the facts,having spent a lot of time in the middle east i laugh at the shish that sky news puts out on the region.

if it were my country i can safely say the last thing i would be doing is going to silverstone to watch a fecking F1 race!. bigger fish to fry !

@ ali

I wouldn't be surprised if we are not getting a true picture of what is happening in Bahrain, but from your own post it does indeed seem that the security situation is not good. And for this reason if no other it would be unwise to expect the teams to go there to race.

It's very sad for the fans in Bahrain but it's just the same with the Pakistani cricket team - they have to play all their matches in other countries because other teams simply don't feel safe visiting them. I really hope that the troubles in both countries can be satisfactorily solved, but until then I must agree F1 (and cricket) should stay away.

For me it's a matter of ethics. The country is clearly in turmoil. Even if safety for the fans, drivers, team personnel and media were guaranteed, it's simply unethical to send the most prestigious and expensive motorsport in the world on a Bahraini road trip at this point in time. As Mark Webber recently said on Twitter: "When people in a country are being hurt, the issues are bigger than sport".

Like i said the situation is very safe and calm right now.

And the fact remains, no one ever got threatened in Bahrain unlike Button who was threatened in Brazil.
So Bahrain remains safer than Brazil and cant be compared to South Africa for God's sake which was were the WC was held.

I dare anyone to walk there or in Brazil with expensive watches unless you want walk back 1 arm missing.

Bring back F1 to Bahrain and dont mix sports with politics becasue safety isnt an issue here :)
