I saw that but thought it may not be worth posting because it may well be taken off again.
Perhaps we should start placing odds on whether the Bahrain will host or not. 'm sure the drivers wouldn't mind skipping all that heat.

Quote:
Bahraini police fired tear gas and rubber bullets at protesters marching toward the landmark Pearl Square in the country's capital Friday, two days after authorities lifted emergency rule.
The country's security force moved against the protesters shortly before Formula One's governing body deemed the kingdom safe enough to host the Bahrain Grand Prix in October.
The annual F1 race has been Bahrain's most profitable international event since 2004, when the nation became the first Arab country to stage the Grand Prix. Bahrain organizers insisted they are ready to host the race this year despite the deadly crackdown. The season-opening March auto race was postponed because of the political unrest.

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

More here (Selected passages):

Quote:
The decision to take Formula One back to Bahrain this season has prompted a heated online debate, as more than 300,000 people signed an online petition calling for the race to be scrapped.

Red Bull’s Australian driver Mark Webber was the only one to speak out, saying before the announcement: “When people in a country are being hurt, the issues are bigger than sport. Let's hope the right decision is made.”
....he could be risking his future in F1 by saying much more.

Red Bull, suggests that the teams could well oppose the decision.


Quite apart from the moral implications of traveling there and being seen to endorse a country with a questionable human rights record, the season will likely be extended until at least a week into December and there may very well be insurance concerns.

Given that there may be legitimate concerns about the possibility of kidnap, injury, or worse, who will underwrite the teams to travel with their hundreds of employees and superstar drivers?

Today’s decision has been long awaited. But it could just be the beginning and not the end of the story.

Wouldn't Switzerland be a great place to host F1 or even the US?

Surely the Indian GP will revert back to its original date? Part of the reason for cancelling the Bahrain GP was that some teams had already made arrangements for India. Also they don't want the season extended further into December.

F1 Headlines

BBC News:
Quote:

They say it is not practical to add the race at the end of a long season and asked for the Indian Grand Prix to be moved back to its original date.

BBC Sport understands that Fota - which represents all the F1 teams bar back-of-the-grid Hispania - expressed its objections to Bahrain being rescheduled on logistical grounds, its letter saying that the idea of adding a 20th race in December would be "unbearable to our staff".
"The reason the teams get quite upset about the December factor is that it's a massive commitment for the guys that go racing," McLaren technical director Paddy Lowe told BBC Sport. "And that is typically when they have their holidays."

Alright. Haven't been that active hear of late.

But anyway, it is nearly GO GO GO!

Though disappointing if they start behind the safety car.

Re: The 2011 Formula One Championship

What is the point of having wet tyres if they either go behind the safety car or red flag the race every time it rains?
