F1 teams will meet Bernie Ecclestone to talk about 2012 Bahrain Grand Prix – Formula 1 news
The teams will meet with the F1 chief executive, Bernie Ecclestone on Friday to talk about Bahrain Grand Prix which is to be held at Bahrain International Circuit in Sakhir on April 22, 2012.
Despite the ongoing civil unrest and public demonstrations in the Kingdom of Bahrain, Ecclestone has been quite positive about the occurrence of the race event and expressed that the race will not go ahead.
Moreover, he said that they are not going to have any kind of particular discussion about Bahrain in the meeting.
“I'm meeting the teams on unrelated matters,” Ecclestone said. “There's nothing about Bahrain, or Barcelona or Monaco or anywhere. The race is on the calendar. Unless it gets withdrawn by the national sporting authority in the country, we will be there.
I don't see any difference between here and Bahrain. It's the same. It's another race on the calendar.”
He added that the people in Bahrain are only concerned with their own business and they have nothing to do with the race at Sakhir.
“I don't see why it should be. I don't think that the people in Bahrain have got anything against F1 team people or journalists. Apparently people there are carrying out their business as normal, I'm told. I've not been there,” said Ecclestone.
Furthermore, he said that all the necessary security measures will be taken in order to ensure the safety of the teams.
Additionally, the race co-ordinators have also been quite confident about the event and have said that all the security issues have been handled well. 
On the other hand, Damon Hill, former F1 world champion said that FIA should give the Bahrain GP another thought because of the turmoil prevailing in the country. Besides, the human right activists have also been passing out the statements that the race
should be cancelled.
Conversely, FIA said that they have been persistently monitoring and evaluating the conditions in Bahrain.
It will be important to mention that Ecclestone said that media should only quote the reality rather than making up stories about the issues.
