Bahrain F1 probably a no goer
With only two years remaining of Formula One, this is pretty disappointing.
FORMULA One motor sport boss Bernie Ecclestone was last night on the brink of calling off the opening grand prix of the season.
It comes amid the horrific backdrop of tanks lining the streets of Bahrain where11 protesters were reported killed in riots just a few miles from the Sakhir circuit.
Ecclestone, the sport’s commercial rights-holder, was facing the most difficult – and potentially the most expensive – decision of his 40-year career as reports broke of the military response to protests.
Formula One teams are expected to meet in the next 24 hours to debate whether they should boycott the race, which is scheduled to take place on March 13.
Lady bingbing will, of course, be crying crocodile tears over this one.
