Ecclestone: The Bahrain Grand Prix will take place as planned

Shanghai – The big boss of Formula 1, Bernie Ecclestone said that the Bahrain Grand Prix will take place as scheduled next week, unless the authorities of that country otherwise.

Ecclestone said that the plans have not changed for now. He plans to meet tomorrow’s stables, but added that it has nothing special.

Bahrain’s Sunni leaders and race organizers want to present it to show that the Persian Gulf island nation has turned the page on a dark chapter.

The CEO of the track said that extremists fear to maintain the storm seem more widespread than in reality, in order to cancel the race.

The advocacy groups Human Rights criticized the decision to bring the race schedule this year, adding anti-F1 slogans in their events.

Amnesty International expects to publish next week a report on the number of protesters detained in Bahrain, and violations of human rights attributed to security forces.

Several drivers have chosen not to comment on the situation. When six of them were asked if they had any moral reservations to race in Bahrain yesterday, they all remained motionless and silent.

The reigning world champion, Sebastian Vettel, has also diverted the questions of this nature.

“No questions about Bahrain. Go see the people in the paddock, said Vettel. Maybe I do not watch enough television. ”

Mark Webber of Red Bull, said that the drivers are in a difficult situation.

“Ultimately, we are all human and we all have our way of seeing things, Webber said. We like to think that people and decisions are fair. As a pilot, I am bound to my team, which is related to the FIA. There are so many races, we go there, then we make the race. This is what it is. “
