I’m sorry for not having posted anything about the political situation in Bahrain or my views on it. I am by no means making light of the situation; I thought the race should really have been cancelled from the start, and it was a big risk to go there amid all the atrocities that were happening. Bernie and the FIA didn’t do themselves any favours by letting it run either. We’re just very fortunate that the weekend ran smoothly and none of the F1 personnel were targeted. And kudos to Mark Webber and Force India for speaking out about it.
I know that we all have our own views, and I didn’t want to get caught up in any debate because, to be honest, I don’t know the full facts. I was never sure what was the truth, and what was just media hype or rumours. I’m here to talk about racing, so that’s what I did, and I hope that didn’t offend anyone.
