This anti-government protests that have spread around the Arab world have serious repercussions. We all know that it first started off in Tunisia, then Egypt, then this Arab country, then that country. Amazing viral-like protests that have affected even us over here as oil prices are soaring and now we're going to have to wait for the next scheduled race -the Australian GP on the 27th of March for the F1 circus to start. In fact, the official pre-race group test that was also to be held in Bahrain will now be held at Barcelona on 8th to the 11th of March. There is also no news whether the Bahrain GP will be postponed to a later date or that it will still be a fixture in this year's F1 calendar. I suppose that would depend how stable the country is within the next few months.
Oh well, last year's Bahrain GP was Bore-rain to me, and a lot of others too. But then again, this year, during the same time it'll be even worse as there wouldn't be a race at all as F1 begins a little later.
