Bernie gives Bahrain go-ahead

2013-02-18 14:33

NO DOUBT: Bernie Ecclestone is certain that the 2013 Bahrain GP will go ahead as scheduled besides the protests happening there.

It's "100% certain" that the 2013 Bahrain Formula 1 GP will go ahead, according to Bernie Ecclestone.

However, violence has kicked off once again in the island kingdom as thousands of anti-government protesters mark the two-year anniversary of the so-called "Arab Spring".

'WE'LL BE THERE'

The latest international reports say at least two have already died in the clashes between the protesters and security forces.

F1 chief executive Ecclestone said earlier in February 2013 that he was "100 percent" sure his sport would race in Bahrain as scheduled this April.

"We're scheduled to have an event there so we'll be there the same as last year."
