SUZUKA: Formula One teams are keeping a wary eye on the situation in Bahrain with the Gulf kingdom due to host a race next April after this year’s event was cancelled due to civil unrest.

“Obviously it’s worrying when you hear the type of news that’s come out of Bahrain,” said Christian Horner, principal of champions Red Bull. “But I think that Bernie Ecclestone [President and CEO of Formula One Management], more than anybody probably, is acutely aware of the situation there and when the time is right for difficult decisions that have to be made he’s demonstrated that he’s not afraid of making them.”
