"Highest level of authorities".......
Are they not the ones with whom the issue lies, and keenest to see the go ahead of the GP in order to project a sense of order and normality to the world?

I really cant decide what side of the fence I'm on with this. last years "independent" investigators spend most of their visit with officially sanctioned bodies and they only wanted to portray a country of peace and order, international media painted a different picture, now I feel its a much muddier picture, maybe we should just leave the GP for the time being and review in say 5 years if the Bahrani's still want a race, that way any reforms have a chance to take effect and the dust can settle before we decide where we race. F! should not be a political pawn for good or for ill. it should be a race.

Drop the race for 2012/13/14 review end of 2014 with a view to return in 2015. Simple!

While the place Is still in turmoil F1 can't be seen to be taking sides either way, so dropping it to give them a chance to sort themselves out is the only option

Yeah fair point but as I said F1 shound be and should remain A- political.
My point was aimed at F1 staying out of a very difficult protracted situation.
I like many many others sympathize a great deal with the ordinary Bahrani citizens and honestly believe that all the comments and sound bytes we are hearing from bahrain officials at the minute should be classified as utter BS.

Like my point was trying to make mate, F1 needs simply to remove itself from the current situation and when the time is right look at how we could go forward in the ME if there was a desire.

jose. you answer a simple question... do you want a country's government to knuckle in to a small band of protestors who have declared their intention to disrupt a sporting event (wanted by the majority) by violence?

No arcuid
Money and safety (their safety not of d Bahrain citizens).

If they are concerned about the latter. then the teams perhaps should think twice?
