The Champions Red Bull Racing’s team principal Christian Horner says that FIA and teams can be trusted to make the right decision about racing in Bahrain Grand Prix this season. Presently Formula 1 not decided to cancel the event.
The existing political situation in the country has led to calls for the event to be canned, although F1 supremo Bernie Ecclestone said earlier this week there were no worried about the grand prix. Horner made it clear that, as of right now, there are no reasons to believe the event will not go ahead as scheduled.
“As far as I’m aware, we’re definitely going,” Horner told Reuters.
“We rely on the FIA, it’s the FIA Formula One world championship, and Bahrain is one of the races on the calendar.
“They are far better placed to know what the issues are, and we trust their judgement, as we do the promoter, and we’ll see how things develop,” added the Briton, whose Australian driver Mark Webber was critical of last year’s attempts to hold the race in the country.
“As of today there’s a race committed to Bahrain, and therefore we’ll be there.”
Horner said the team would “take all the necessary precautions” for safety and ruled out insurance fears as a reason to prevent Formula One from going.
