Dubai: All measures will be taken to ensure the safety of Formula One teams and fans during the grand prix in Bahrain next month, the chief executive of the Bahrain International Circuit said on Wednesday.
Bahrain has been in political turmoil for a year. The 2011 Bahrain GP was cancelled due to a wave of anti-government protests and punishing government crackdowns. At least 50 people have been killed in the unrest.
Sheik Salman bin Isa Al-Khalifa told The Associated Press that Bahrain was now safe. He said the country was ready to stage the F1 race the Gulf island nation has been hosting since 2004.
