The 2011 season’s opening race scheduled to happen on March 13th 2011 at Bahrain has been called off thanks to anti-government protests in the kingdom, ending a week of question marks on whether the race would proceed or not. Bahrain has been on the F1 calendar since 2004. No new race date has been set, and the next GP is supposed to be on the 27th of March in Melbourne. “We felt it was important for the country to focus on immediate issues of national interest. At the present time the country’s entire attention is focused on building a new national dialogue for Bahrain. I would like to extend my personal gratitude to Bernie Ecclestone for his support and understanding,” said Bahrain Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad al Khalifa. There is no word on what will happen after this but we could see the Bahrain GP rescheduled and moved further down the F1 calendar.
