This story about Bahrain must surely be an April Fools joke from Bernie. I know that Bahrain has slipped under the radar recently in news terms but that doesn't mean that everything is grand now and we, being F1, can't be going into a country which has brought in foreign soldiers in order to quell protests from its own citizens.
I for one would be seriously upset at any decision to go to Bahrain this year and will not watch the race. Only the second time I will have missed a GP since 1990.
On a lighter note this is definitely April fools
