F1 » Drivers would have gone to Bahrain

Prior to Bahrain's decision not to pursue a slot on the 2011 F1 calendar, several drivers hinted that they would not have objected to returning for the country's grand prix.

Interesting that the drivers mentioned in this article aren't renowned for thinking. It is a shame that F1 is populated to an extent by people detatched from reality, operating in their own lil' world- living in a 'bubble'. Only Lewis Hamilton alludes to the wider significancehe of staging a race in that country, and the intended use of it by the absolute monarchy to gloss over their heinous crimes against humanity.

Sad, really. Thankfully I am not a fanatical follower of these drivers, otherwise I'd be pondering why I follow a sport consisting of people who lack the intellect to have a moral conscience and to grasp the gravity of this issue, and the situation.

I have respect for Mark Webber as he is the only one of the drivers who seems to be aware that he is a member of the human race first and a racing driver second. Under the disgusting corporate concept of 'moral relavitism', an individual is now supposed to be able to compartmentalise responsibility and be a 'good' company man, (i.e. doing what's best for profits even if it means pushing through contracts that will cause starvation or death through pollution in the Third World), without bringing any stain on his moral character as a 'good' person and caring family man once the working day is over.

Other sports events are still going on in Bahrain regardless of the GP. The self righteous sanctimonious outcry from the luvvies who have positioned the F1 drivers as their social conscience without having a clue of what really happened in Bahrain are 'upset' because most of the drivers didn't have a problem racing there after all. That's show business folks.
