“We wouldn’t take a decision on a gamble,” he told Reuters.

“I think it’s a calculated decision, we’ve weighed our options and we are committed to the grand prix and to its success. I don’t think anything drastic will happen. It’s not Afghanistan, it’s not Syria. I don’t see why anything should happen this year that hasn’t happened in the previous years.”

“You have some stuff going on in villages, but it’s nothing that can’t be handled. He said

“I have no doubt at all that Formula One is not a target, not the teams, not the media.”

The chief also insists that Formula 1 racing will gives positive effect in Bahrain.

“The country has gone through a tough year, we are still wounded in some aspects or another and we are on the way to regaining our health, so to speak. I think the race will be positive to the country.

“We need it as a country, we deserve it. I think we have passed the worst of the incidents and we need help to restore the country back on track.”

He does, however, admit that demonstrations can be expected as “they (the protesters) will probably look out for the media to try and get their message abroad, which is fine. Let them express their opinion.”
