I am glad that F1 didn't suffer any tragedies from their participation in the Bahrain GP. I disagreed with your previous column (though not enough to post - I wasn't going to lose any sleep without the 2012 Bahrain GP. In fact, I'd have slept in...)

It is interesting to note that there is Bahraini money involed in F1, and therefore the decision making process.

Certainly Bahrain's crimes aren't worse than those conducted by some other nations in F1. (How about USA/UK involved in Afghanistan? Or direct support of the current Bahrain regime itself?)

Even the danger to life and limb didn't strike me as worse than that of Brazil.

Germany and Britain have both had protestors actually wander onto the race track during the race.

I am with Cathal Kelly on this one:


It was totally the wrong thing to run the race.

Politics has no place in the Olympics , World Cup of Soccer or F1!
