Latest reports published that Bahrain GP call for the boycott in favor of human rights. Bahrain Center for Human Rights group called for F1 drivers to boycott the Bahrain GP among the non-stop troubles in the country.

“We enter a championship run by the FIA and we need to trust in their decision,” Red Bull team boss Christian Horner told BBC.

“They have a closer overview than we do, I know they have been looking at it.”

Ferrari team boss, Stefano Domenicali, said his team would follow the recommendations of both the FIA and F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone, the commercial rights holder (CRH).

“There are a lot of rumours about the situation,” said Domenicali. “We need to rely on the competent authorities. We have the international federations, we have the CRH, we have relations with the country and we cannot rely on different sources of information.

“We need to be very cool and realistic on that, so we need to rely on what the official authorities, who have this responsibility, will tell us.”
