Bahrain GP: Tyre and Pit Stop Strategy

A Sense of Proportion

Should Formula One be in Bahrain? Many fans are going as far as boycotting the event (including those with a Sky subscription).

Should the Bahrain Grand Prix go ahead? The FIA has decided that it should which was clearly going to elicit some strong opinions from a lot of people but personally, I haven’t a clue if it’s the right choice.
