A support-race team and a respected journalist have become the next to pull out of this weekend’s highly controversial Bahrain grand prix.
The Porsche Supercup team MRS said its decision to skip the support race in the divided island Kingdom is the “first time in our history that we have had to cancel”. “In the end we have the responsibility for our employees,” said team boss Karsten Molitor, citing security concerns.
At least three television broadcasters will not travel to next week’s controversial Bahrain grand prix.
Blick newspaper, as well as Bild and London’s Times, are reporting that the host broadcasters for Finland, Japan and Germany (Sky Deutschland) will not be sending personnel to the troubled island Kingdom.
Formula One Management added that it believes “many other channels” will “follow suit before the season gets underway”.
