F1′s Bahrain Grand Prix under threat once again
F1′s Bahrain Grand Prix just can’t catch a break! Last year’s race was postponed due to protests and violence, eventually being canceled altogether for the 2011 season. Now, it seems likely that the race is under threat once again with a fresh round of protests taking place. This time though, the protesters are clearly after F1.
On Twitter, protesters have been using the hashtags #BloodyF1 and #noF1 to show their disapproval for the race taking place, linking graphic photos and videos of violence in the country. Even worse, witnesses claim that a 22-year-old man filming the protests was shot and killed making cancelation of the Grand Prix a potential reality for the 2012 season.
Let’s hope the situation calms down, first and foremost for the safety of the Bahraini people.
