Damon Hill is correct. Until some stability is brought back to Bahrain, the race there should be removed from the calendar. However the race will be run this weekend so let's just hope fans and teams can enjoy the grand prix without incident.

Greetings from Bahrain!!!

Yes F1 should come to bahrain because they are a tool for bahrain to show case that majorty of the people love the sport and will always welcome back their f1 family - teams, drivers & fans - who didn't come to bahrain and see things from distance will be guided by unreal or spicied up media news - been not safe and all this media **** which they want only to sell a story - but on the groud and from the streets of bahrain i can confirm that its safe, its clear and bahrain people will always stay faith to bahrain f1 and everyone is welcome.

F1 should stay out go Bahrain, until calm is restored. There is clearly a lingering and festering problem politically, and until the authorities sort it out amicably, the F1 should collect it's revenue elsewhere. Surely the F1 management body can do without Bahrain's financial input for a while longer. If they are so interested in the country, why not try to assist in some way to restore calm to the region. I am certainly politically unqualified, but merely voice my democratic opinion, for what it is worth.

Suppress the F1 haters. Those who are squeamish can stick their heads in the desert sand while that is taken care of. Then take the money, put on a show, and run away. Business as usual.

There's enough politics within F! without worrying about any more. If you don't agree with holding the race then don't go, but don't try & force your opinions down my throat.......I'm not interested! F1 is a world sport/entertainment & should not have to be bothered with what the locals are up to.

To wait until a week before racing in Bahrain, to protest about going there is just Daft.

F1 should have sorted this out sooner!

What happened to the Force India last year was unacceptable.
