FOTAs position on Bahrain

10 Apr

There has been a lot of speculation and articles on the web lately about teams not been very positive about going to race in Bahrain. Even an anonymous team principal was mentioned in recent news pieces. I got in touch with FOTA’s Secretary General Olivier Weingarten and he commented on the situation:

‘There’s been some media speculation recently to the effect that the Teams may seek to cancel this year’s Bahrain Grand Prix. That would not be possible. Teams are unable to cancel Grands Prix. We race in an international series called the FIA Formula 1 World Championship, and it is therefore for the FIA to offer the Teams guidance on these issues.’

So the days ahead are very interesting! Lets see how the story develops with Jean Todt and Bernie Ecclestone attending the event
