    "The organisers of the Bahrain Grand Prix have moved to reassure visitors to the track ahead of next month’s F1 test session and race.

    The events have been targeted by anti-government protesters.

    Circuit CEO Shaikh Salman bin Isa Al Khalifa, said: “The safety of all Bahraini nationals, expats and overseas visitors is a priority at all times in the Kingdom and, at the Bahrain International Circuit, our focus at the present time is on delivering another successful event in the form of the 2011 Gulf Air Formula 1 Bahrain Grand Prix."

    Bahrain: see you the next season! (or not? :eek: )

    Err, no. They are working on a possible re-schedule. Too early to say that we won't have to bear Bahrein this year.

    Well its not important that there is a grand prix or not, they have much bigger and more important things to do.
    At least this puts melbourne the 1st grand prix (as it has been for many a year). they always have put an exellent show.

    The link didn't confirm the race wouldn't be squeezed in anyway, all it said was that Bahrain would not host the opening race.
