I hope they cancel the race. It’s a stupid track from T4 on, it just meanders until one of the straights. Too many 1st gear turns and it’s all freakin’ desert, so featureless. I know, I’ve raced there in online races (RACE 07). I hate it. The track from a few years ago was OK, though.

this is actually huge in the sport of Formula 1....the Bahrain GP was cancelled last year because of the unrest in the country and there was a lot of concern about holding this years event...a lot of the teams were worried and there has been a lot of back and forth about the race....F1 grand poobah Bernie Eccelstone and the FIA are gonna to be in big trouble if there are problems at the race and look like fools if there’s a last minute cancel...

"setting off street battles and sending visitors fleeing for cover"

Perhaps they should modify the cars a bit, and 'kill two birds with one stone'

In many of the recent F1 races, the top qualifier runs ahead 20+ seconds and wins, poll to poll.

So a little sidewhow shootout may be what Ecclestone is actually after.

Jihad is so contemporary, proving the sport is up to date and internationally aware, etc.

As for me, between the Sunnis and Shiites, I say eff them all, cancell all future races for the duration of jihad.

They didn’t hold races in the communist bloc during the cold war.
