Until reading this post I was of the opinion that F! should not go to Bahrain on the principle of the human rights violations but right now I’m just beginning to change my mind. It was often written earlier in the year that the Bahraini Regime cracked down so hard on the protesters because they wanted the GP to go ahead and I’m pretty sure the protesters were planning to target the event and disrupt it some how.
By having F1 in Bahrain it could well send out a message to the world saying ‘look at us, how mighty we are with our race, how wonderful everything is here’… but I’m beginning to think not.
Little has been herd on main stream media about the country’s woe’s compared to the likes of Libya and Egypt and and surely if F1 returned to Bahrain it would provide the platform to the worlds media the protesters so desperately need to get their voice’s herd by the world. which without, they might just fade into the distance and be forgotten about with the likes of Yemen and Sudan
would it not therefore actually be sad if F1 did not return to Bahrain in 2012?
