I wholeheartedly agree with Dr Hambridge’s sentiments on Bahrain expressed in December’s Letters. The FIA should not award rounds of its most prestigious series (first Formula 1 and even more disappointingly the World Endurance Championship) to a country which classifies treatment of the wounded as a crime.
One has to question the level of treatment that would be given to such as Mark Webber, who was openly critical of the current regime, in the event of an accident. Surely if there’s the slightest doubt then the race should not take place regardless of the amount of money Bahrain contributes to the coffers of the FIA and BCE?
