F1 reacts to death of Bahraini protestor

F1 has been stunned by the news of the death of a protestor last night and many prominent figures involved in the race have given a few seconds to give the impression they actually care what is going on in the country.

Constant criticism from all quarters of the decision to stage the Grand Prix despite the civil unrest has not stopped Bernie Ecclestone and his minions from giving the gravy train full steam ahead, and the death of protestors seems unlikely to even make it onto the teams’ hi-tech weather radars.

Ecclestone confirmed, “We don’t really know what’s going on outside the circuit but I can assure you that projected earnings from this Grand Prix are at around $500 million.

“The Crown Prince is OK with everything so I’ll go along with him.”

Only one priority

Pole-sitter Sebastian Vettel reacted: “Well obviously it’s tragic news but it doesn’t concern me and the rest of the drivers.

“A far more pressing issue for me personally is how many pit-stops I should aim for during the race tomorrow.

“And whether to go with soft or hard tyres.

“Really these decisions are so difficult. I don’t know what the Bahrainis can be complaining about which could be worse than that.”
