‘Anonymous’ Hacker group protests the Bahrain Grand Prix by taking down F1.com
Worldwide hacking group, Anonymous, took down the official Formula 1 website on Friday night as part of a protest against the Bahraini government and the staging of the Grand Prix. The official site is up and running now, but it was offline for a short period replaced with the text ‘Formula None’, along with several paragraphs explaining why the F1 event should not be allowed to go ahead.
In addition, there have been some close-calls for F1 teams over the weekend, with Force India avoiding a petrol bomb, and the Sauber crew also getting caught in a clash. Other than that, all looks to be normal for now, but a protest is expected to be staged at the Bahrain International Circuit on race-day. Let’s hope it’s a peaceful one.
