As someone pointed out yesterday, immediately after Friday prayers is usually a flashpoint for any trouble.It would be wise for most teams or all the teams to get themselves back in their hotels before then.

i like Bahrain so i was really hoping that the race would go ahead. But these guys are getting firebombed while they are just trying to do their jobs??!! that is over the top! and just for our entertainment?.

i don't begrudge B.E.. How to these people think that the world will come to their cause by hurting maiming and possibly killing people entering their country for Motorsport. If anything my opinion has swung the other way.. if these people are trying to set people on fire, freedom is the last thing these people need, lock them all up.

they don't seem to care that innocent people they are targeting have wives and children at home, they should be in jail, not free at all.....

Victor, there is no excuse for causeing harm to an innocent..

These protesters, by causeing harm are no better than the people they are protesting against! I have zero sympathy for bullies no matter what their back story is or how badly they claim to be treated..

Im sure im not alone when I say by taking things to this level in their protests these dirtbags come across no better. Everyone should be acountable for their crimes, no matter which side if the fence your on

Wrong move by Force India are they more special than Ferrari Mclaren or any other team?! They should had played balls like everyone else I have this feeling Bernie and F1 will make them pay for this dearly.

Isn't everyone happy Bernie was right and there are NO CONCERNS ABOUT BAHRAIN AT ALL?!?!?! Go Berni... Another in form decision by the money grubbing Troll.. Tw@.

PS. THIS IS NOT IN ANY WAY SAYING ANYTHING ABOUT THE CITIZENS OF BAHRAIN. I believe they have full right to protest for democracy, this is not the 19th century. BUT F1 SHOULD NOT BE IN A COUNTRY THAT IS IN THE MIDDLE OF POLITICAL TURMOIL.

When apartheid was going strong here in South Africa we were barred from international sport, people boycotted us left right and centre, yet, in Bahrain, they're oppressed people shrug it off and excuse it... Appauling...
