Bahrain GP - When money and politics meet sports

If it were up to the fan, would it be a race?
Wednesday, April 17, 2013

April 17th, 2013 (F1plus/E. Black).- Last year around this time I wrote an article about Formula One giving the Grand Prix in Bahrain the green light. It started as follows, and I think you might agree that not much has changed:

Perhaps it’s when it gets entangled in a political struggle of morality and finance."

The question of whether Formula One should or should not go to Bahrain amidst a certain degree of civil unrest is a question of safety. The question of whether the Grand Prix should go ahead amidst the current debate on human and civil rights is perhaps more of a moral argument.

Based largely on the above scenario and no new threats, the FIA and most of Formula One feels it is safe enough to continue with the Grand Prix in Sakhir. The protests are localized for the most part and in pockets distant from the circuit. I would be lying if I said I've heard much news from Bahrain between last season's race and the last week or two. The media has been fairly quiet on the subject.

Sex sells, so do sensationalistic stories. Perhaps the main stream media takes the opportunity it is given, and takes advantage of Formula One’s global reach. It clearly puts Bahrain on the world stage and it gives protesters and media a chance to use that as a forum.

1. Would you hold the GP if you were calling the shots?

2. Does it cross any lines or should Political issues be left outside of the sports arena?

3. Should Todt attend the GP and support his decision to run it?
