London: Formula One (F1) boss Bernie Ecclestone has reportedly changed his stance on the controversial Bahrain Grand Prix by writing to the 12 teams to re-vote on the issue.
The FIA's World Motor Sport Council (WMSC) met Friday in Barcelona and reinstated the Bahrain race to October, pushing the inaugural Indian Grand Prix to the season finale in December. The Bahrain race, originally scheduled in March, was postponed indefinitely in the wake of anti-government protests in the Gulf nation.
The Daily Telegraph reported that "Ecclestone has had a change of heart and written to all F1 teams urging them to express their discontent and demand a re-vote. The teams are expected to confirm by Tuesday night that they are unhappy with racing in Bahrain Oct 30."
