The FIA World Motor Sport Council has failed to come up with any useful information on the future of the 2011 Bahrain GP, and has instead revealed a new deadline of May 1.
Not only that it says that it’s up to the organisers to say whether the race can be organised this year. Meanwhile there is no news on how the event might fit into the calendar.
The announcement said: “The World Motor Sport Council asked the Bahrain Motor Federation to communicate by May 1st at the latest if the Bahrain Grand Prix can be organised in 2011.”
The lack of information makes it hard for anyone to confirm travel arrangements for the end of season races as clearly there could be some shuffling, with Brazil possibly moving to Dec 4 to allow for an Abu Dhabi/Bahrain back-to-back.
