Bahrain Decision Postponed Until May

A decision on the rescheduling of the Bahrain Grand Prix has been postponed until 1st May after the World Motor Sport Council meeting in Paris today.

The race, originally scheduled for this weekend, was called off after civil unrest in the Gulf state.

It was thought that Bernie Ecclestone was hoping for the new date of the race to be arranged before the 2011 season gets underway in Australia at the end of the month, but the FIA have allowed the Bahrain Motor Federation time to assess the situation in the country before informing the WMSC as to whether a race can be held later in the season.

If the race does go ahead, it is thought that it will be the penultimate race in the season, and take place towards the end of November.
