Bahrain say they are ready to host the GP that was cancelled due to the unrest in the kingdom at the start of the season. This is the first time they have actually said they are ready, rather than they ‘will’ be.
The FIA are meeting on the 3rd of June to decide whether to extend the season, and the proposal from Bernie is that the Indian GP will move to the end of the season, and Bahrain will take India’s slot.
There have been objections, notably from Ross Brawn, that the season pushing through to December is just too much for the teams.
I say bring it on, however there are good reasons for not allowing the Bahrainis back on the calendar, but let’s not get into that here, more F1 = good!
Bernie probably needs the money anyhow.
