Bahrain Grand Prix Event still a Question

Bahrain Grand Prix event continues to be a question. A number of parties are still doubts about the security situation in the Middle Eastern country, including British politicians.

In fact, these politicians have sent an open letter published in The Times that it asked the FIA, as the highest authority in the automobile to cancel the delivery of the F1 race in Bahrain in early April.

The politicians in question are a member of the British upper house (House of Lords). They are Lord Ahmed of Wimbledon, Lord Ahmed of Rotherham, Lord Alton, Lord Avebury, Baroness Falkner of Margravine, Lord Hylton, Caroline Lucas and Lord Boswell.

"We highlight the decisions that remain will hold an F1 race in Bahrain in April. Ongoing political crisis in Bahrain to be the cause of instability in the Gulf region.

"Under these circumstances, where there are many demonstrations in the streets and reports of civilian death toll, we do not believe it is time to hold the race in Bahrain," he wrote in his letter that the politicians.

The reaction of the British politicians is apparently motivated by reports of attacks against expatriates from Europe in Karranah on Thursday morning, February 9, 2012. In the event of a British citizen should lose the right hand fingers and suffered other serious injuries.

So far, the FIA and Bernie Ecclestone, the F1 commercial rights holder as not yet reacted to the appeal. Personally, Ecclestone last month had stated that there is nothing to worry about the situation in Bahrain.

"Everyone talked a lot about this country, but I think Bahrain is the region at least in trouble," said Ecclestone at the time.

Bahrain Grand Prix this year will be the debut for them after last year's corresponding cancellation revolution there. According to schedule, racing pole position in Bahrain International Circuit, Sakhir, will be held on 4 April 2012.
