The Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) welcomes FIA’s statement; they are reacted FIA’s judgment for F1 to return to the country 2012 season. FIA’s decision came early on Friday, in which the Jean Todt-led federation expressed its self-assurance in both the Bahraini authorities and safety of the country.
‘The Bahrain International Circuit (‘BIC’) welcomes the statement which the FIA has issued regarding next week’s Bahrain Grand Prix, together with the clarification provided by the Commercial Rights Holder, following recent media speculation,’ reads the BIC statement, sent out later on Friday.
‘The BIC has been clear throughout recent weeks and months that the security situation in Bahrain is suitable for the staging of a major sporting event. This assessment has been provided by experienced figures, from both inside and outside the Bahraini government, to motor racing entities which have travelled to Bahrain to do their own research.
The certainty of those assessments have meant that the BIC has been able to prepare as usual for the staging of the F1 Grand Prix and is therefore wholly confident that the event will be organised with the efficiency that has been the hallmark of the BIC in the past.
We hugely look forward both to an exciting sporting occasion and to extending the traditional warm Bahraini welcome to Formula 1 teams, administrators and fans visiting our country next week.’
