For Christ sake, this is sport not politics! Let the teams race. There are social problems in most places on the F1 calendar but no one bats an eyelid. If any event should be boycotted it's that farce of the London Olyimpics.

While I have no love for the Bahrain government, I don't think it's fair MP's sticking their oars in something which shouldn't have anything to do with politics.

I just hope no violence spreads to the circuit.

If anything, protesters using F1 to demonstrate will only put pressure on the current government.

Dear Mr. MP we know you don't care a penny regarding the people of Bahrain and how democratic or not they are. We know you are interested in defending the interests of big corporations which you are sided with. I've never seen you so worried with people of other country I wish you were interested in defending the rights of common British citizens reducing taxes and ending this big brother nightmare that our Kingdom has become. If you are truly worried against human rights violation and letting people voice their opinions I can point you to many sites in the city of London which are hell on earth just like Bahrein. For once I feel happy your voice is not being heard and your lobby is weakened because that means the voice of many big corporations are being ignored in some parts of the world.

The struggle of the people of Bahrain is front-page news in the mainstream media today. The debate is brought to the fore. Without F1, that wouldn't have happened, and the people of Bahrain would already be yesterday's news.

F1 has already been a force for considerable good here IMHO. If the drivers / teams wish to make political points, they can all race wearing, say, an armband showing solidarity.
