Apr 9, 2012 — A leading member of the 12 team principals, who would not be named, but who said his views were representative – said: "I feel very uncomfortable about going to Bahrain.

"If I'm brutally frank, the only way they can pull this race off without incident is to have a complete military lock-down there. And I think that would be unacceptable, both for Formula One and for Bahrain. But I don't see any other way they can do it."

MPs are also voicing their concerns in the wake of fresh protests and the growing concern for the condition of the jailed activist Abdulhadi Alkhawaja, who has been on hunger strike for 60 days.
