BBC Sport - F1 - F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone to await Bahrain developments

Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone will wait for developments in Bahrain before deciding whether the season-opening Bahrain Grand Prix can go ahead.

Concerns about the race on 13 March follow unrest which has seen three people killed and 231 injured.

Ecclestone initially told BBC Sport on Friday that he had been told there were "no problems" in Bahrain.

But he later admitted the situation had deteriorated, adding: "We should wait and see what happens over the weekend."

Ecclestone added that a decision could be made next Tuesday or Wednesday.

There are also reports that the team managers have been in a 2 hour meeting discussing wether the final testing session, due to happen in bahrain might instead be shifted to Barcelona. The Barcelona track is available on the requested dates.

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