Williams ‘Fully Support’ Decision On Bahrain GP

1 Mins read

The Williams team have released a statement expressing their support for the cancellation of the 2011 Bahrain Grand Prix, announced earlier today.

“It is obviously disappointing for everyone involved in the organisation of the event, but it is clear that to race in Bahrain at this time would be inappropriate given the current circumstances,” said Adam Parr, Chairman of the Williams F1 team.

“It is always Williams' intention to contribute positively to the countries we compete in and so we fully support the Crown Prince's decision to cancel the test and forthcoming Bahrain Grand Prix. We now look forward to a season debut in Melbourne and returning to Bahrain when it is right to do so.”

The final winter test in Bahrain has also been cancelled, and will instead be run at the Circuit de Catalunya, Barcelona, between 8-11 March 2011.
