New Delhi: Red Bull's Mark Webber has expressed his serious reservations on the Bahrain Grand Prix which was recently brought back on the F1 calender and will now take place towards the end of October.
Saying he was extremely surprised by the move, the 34-year-old wrote on his website that he expected the FIA to be firm on the matter. "Even though a decision has been made, I'll be highly surprised if the Bahrain Grand Prix goes ahead this year. The sport should have taken a much firmer stance earlier this year rather than constantly delaying its decision."
The season-opening race was supposed to take place on 13 March but had to be delayed due to political unrest in the region. On Friday though, a unanimous decision was taken to put the race back on and the scheduled Indian Grand Prix was pushed back to December.
Webber though maintained while writing on his website that he had always expected FIA to take a higher moral ground on matters of human rights."It's obvious that the parties involved have struggled to reach a decision but sadly I feel that they still haven't made the right one," wrote the Australian.
