You may or may not have noticed that I haven’t blogged or tweeted much about Bahrain, this is because I am not a political person! I feel for human suffering of course but I don’t understand the complexities of the political situation there so don’t feel qualified to pass judgement on what is going on. I was however concerned for all the personnel who would be in Bahrain and their personal safety so I am now relieved it is over.

There were a few worrying moments over the course of the weekend and I think we were all shocked to hear of the couple of Force India guys who had to go home. What was more shocking though was to hear of the protestor who died over the weekend!

I don’t want to put a dampener on the race or anything but now the race is completed though I’m left wondering if it was all worth it? I’m sure many fans will have enjoyed the race and for Vettel and Red Bull some valuable points were won. I take nothing away from these guys, I know they deserve these points and worked hard for them but was it worth the worry and anguish of family members? Was it worth the danger these personnel were in? Was it worth the panic that the Force India guys must have gone through? Was it worth a life? I can’t answer these questions, I’m just an outsider looking in but I can’t help but wonder!
