Shame on you Formula 1. No surprise that this bunch continues its relationship with oppressive regimes. A two-faced sport. oops my mistake. F1 doesnt care about fans, only money, big business and as a plaything for the despotic elite around the world. 1917

Mark, you speak sense. For every horrific video portrayed by one side there is at least another for the opposing side. Be interesting to see how long this peace lasts... oh wait it hasn't even gone a full day with out stories surfacing showing more of the same.

Mark,
I did and am not afraid to bring the truth out as long as the right information surfaces.

1- Those videos were taken during the unrest in Bahrain (feb) where the shia thought they could topple the regime and media was their weapon.

2- The fact remains that the shia were the aggressors and not the authorities.

3- Force was used by the shia side not the police side. Police only used tear gas.

4- I posted the videos to change the idea that the Govt brutally dealt with its own people (shia in this case because the sunni were not part of it). Ask yoursefl why and you might understand the situation better.

5- Someone said there would be an reveloution. That was their revolution and it was a failed shia revolution. And in it they used all the tools they had to gain the world's sympothy to topple the regime. But the truth is some of them are murderes and thus are in court where they got life in prison and some the death penalty.

6- That was then and its safe now.

this is so wrong.
there has been no consideration for the fans or the indian gp holders whatsoever! look at all the fans that have already booked/prebooked travel accomodation etc. everyone who has wants to claim compensation from bernie and his cronies he's got the money and this has also shown now the complete lack of respect that bernie and his cronies have for the fans of this sport.
come on people the only reason for bahrain being reinstated is for the money and every body knows that.
