First scheduled event is Bahrain early March - except the UK Foreign Office has issued a travel warning, Bernie says it's "not looking so good" and the GP2 race is canceled. The scheduled practice this month was moved to Spain instead.

An interesting way to start the season.

With all the civil unrest there, F1 isnt on the for front of the minds of the Bahrainan people. And if F1 is smart, they just cancel it for all the obvious reasons.

Guess they will make a decision in May on the Bahrain race, but last week in China was a really good one! An impressive run from Webber, and my boy Petrov is looking good for the Renault Team! The rear wing adjustment (DRS) has made for more passing, and I think a good change for 2011.

Great win for Hamilton but I thought Webber had the drive of the day

Particularly given how Hamilton's race nearly started - or didn't start.

Amazing that Red Bull can't seem to figure out how to make KERS reliable, when it looks like HRT and Lotus can.

Also, since we seem to be posting under Bahrain, there is a chance that Bahrain will be back on the schedule later this year.

I bet there's a whole bunch of other teams hoping RB continues to have problems with KERS, Webber may have gone P18 to P1 had KERS been available. Don't forget, RB' s designer is primarily an aerodynamicist, not an electrickery expert.
