F1 teams pleased for Bahrain GP to go ahead

Formula 1 team pleased with the Bahrain Grand Prix to go ahead, following gets reassurances from FIA in China on Friday.

Autosport reports that the spokespersons from all the teams discussed with F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone in the break between first and second practice to talk about the Bahrain circumstances – as moves were made to clear up queries they had.

Red Bull Racing team Principal Christian Horner says that ‘now it’s clear that there will be a race in Bahrain next week.

“I think it’s clear,” said Horner. “The confusing thing has been uncertainty, so I think for everybody here in the paddock now it’s clear that there will be a race in Bahrain next week. I think we take the security of all our employees very carefully and, so inevitably, as with other races, sometimes extra precautions are taken,” he said.

“We’ll do our best to ensure that all our guys and girls are in a secure environment, and I don’t doubt that for a moment. I think the statement from the FIA is clear and you are looking at thousands of people attending that race, not just Red Bull Racing.”

Williams F1 director Toto Wolff told Autosport: “We have to rely on competent people. The FIA issued a statement relying on people there, and competent people. They say it is safe; safe for teams, safe for F1, and that is why we go full steam ahead to Bahrain.

“I am happy to take the team to Bahrain. I have to balance out what information I get and, at the moment, it seems to be competent information. And you have to, at a certain stage, rely on that information. I would rather go for [information from] competent people being there, rather than Facebook.”

Toto Wolff said that the discussion had been upbeat, and that it was good to get some talks with Ecclestone about the situation there.

“The teams expressed I would not say concern, but they wanted to know whether everything we heard was right, and we have to rely on this.”
