BBC Sport - F1 - Bernie Ecclestone to let Bahrain decide on grand prix

Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone says he will leave the decision on whether to hold next month's Bahrain Grand Prix to the country's crown prince.

The season-opening race is in doubt following unrest that has seen six people killed after police fired live rounds at protestors demanding reform.

Ecclestone told BBC Sport that crown prince Salman bin Hamad al-Khalifah was best placed to make the call.

"He will decide whether it's safe for us to be there," Ecclestone said.

"I've no idea. I'm not there, so I don't know."

He added: "We won't advise people to go unless it's safe."

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
