Nico Hulkenberg is absolutely right. FIA shouldn't put teams' member and drivers in such as situation.
I think FIA President Jean Todt is less sensitive in moral obligation as President of FIA.
Now safety of F1 teams' member and drivers are at risk.
I couldn't understand why FIA decided to go Bahrain in first place even though everyone knows the demonstration will take place and Bahrain police force will be brutally crack down on opposition group.
Going to Bahrain is morally and ethically wrong. For someone pleasure, other peoples have to suffer is not a ideal leisure sports for most of us.
Also Formula One image will tarnish and suffer in Motor Sport World.
We can't blame Bernie alone but I'll blame more on FAI President Jean Todt because he decided it. It's his poor judgment and he must take full responsible for that.
FAI President Jean Todt must resign.
I can't call resign for Bernie because he was representative of private own company.

I quite agree - I'm amazed they even considered going, the decision was obviously heavily biased and it won't put F1 in a very good light. Of course, now the horse has well and truly bolted, the politicians are jumping on the Galloway / Milliband-wagon. Shame they didn't take a break from fiddling their expenses last week and speak up then, now the F1 paddock is up and running they may as well crack on with it as banging out now will probably be even worse.

Obviously, FAI president Jean Todt and Bernie Ecclestone decision to go ahead Bahrain GP was supporting Bahrain Royal family and Government because the wealth of Bahrain Royal family these peoples are very important in their high class social circuit. The reason of decision to go Bahrain was personal and business for both of Jean Todt and Bernie Ecclestone.
Jean Todt and Bernie Ecclestone let down Formula One image and ethical standard.
We are dumb as you think if you say both of you unaware and unexpected for current situation.
