With a large part of the world having access to the net it seems all the Islamic countries are trying to oust thier dodgy dictators.
I'm sure this'll cause problems in the short term, like GPs being cancelled, but things are looking up for Islam in the long run I rekon.
Lets just hope the hard line separatists don't get into power.

My gut feeling says the Bahrain GP isn’t going to happen, I hope I’m wrong.

I wish the country and all its people the best of luck, but also wish they could have waited until after the Grand Prix before they started their protests. 

If the race is cancelled I think the teams should be aloud to test their cars and set-ups on another track, that would be fair.

The Bahrain Grand Prix, which was due to be the opening race of the 2011 F1 season, has been called off because of civil unrest in the Gulf Kingdom.

I thought this would happen, now it has, what a bummer  Huh?, we have to hold tight until Australia.

Im trying to look on the positive side but as yet nothing is coming to mind.  scratch-head

I’m glad about this, Lewis Hamilton needs as many races as he can get if he’s going to beat Vettel this year.

Good decision, lets hope the race runs ok and there is peace in the region.

Much as I like to see politics kept out of sport, I still feel Bahrain doesn't deserve a GP this year.
They were still tear gassing and firing rubber bullets last week into the pro democracy crowd. Better than live shot I suppose.

I also think it is unfair on the teams 'cos it's eating into their testing time for next years cars.

All said and done, I will still watch it and maybe Vettel having a DNF will let someone else win.

That’s it then, the race wont take place, the teams don’t want to go.

Do you think they will shift all the remaining races back or just take a break?.

They wont have to do anything, the Bahrain GP was supposed to be the first one in the year and we have already missed it so its back to "as you were" for the remaining races.

The politics continue. I found this link in the RSS feeds here.

Bahrain GP boss hits out at 'temperamental' teams.
http://en.espnf1.com/bahrain/motorsport/story/54179.html?CMP=OTC-RSS

As opposed to 'world hits out at temperamental Bahrain government'. I am incenced.

Wind your neck in and sort your house out Mr. Alzayani.

Well said Snowy, Bahrain should get their own house in order before they start criticising Australia and the US. I don’t ever remember either of those countries putting tanks on the street and aiming their guns at their own people.

Shocking behaviour.
