Despite Concerns Of Unrest, Ecclestone Says Bahrain F1 Will Go As Scheduled
Published April 16, 2013
ECCLESTONE GIVES THUMBS UP: The BBC also reported F1 CEO Bernie Ecclestone said there is "no reason" why this weekend's Bahrain Grand Prix should not go ahead. Ecclestone said, "There's no reason why [the race] shouldn't be [a success]." Asked about the demonstrations, he said: "What's happened? They're demonstrating now? I didn't know that. There's nobody demonstrating." The Bahrain authorities have promised "appropriate security measures" for the grand prix. Protestors said that "they see an opportunity to use the race to highlight what they say are injustices still being committed against them" (BBC, 4/15).
