No Bahrain GP this season, Indian leg likely in Oct

New Delhi: The inaugural Indian GP could be held on October 30 as scheduled earlier after Bahrain Grand Prix organisers on Friday withdrew from the current F1 season, exactly a week after the race was re-instated by the Formula One governing body.

Bahrain GP was orginally a season-opening race but was postponed due to civil unrest in the country.

International Automobile Federation`s (FIA) World Motor Sport Council had reinstated the race on June 3 after having a fresh look at the prevailing situation in the country but many drivers and teams had shown apprehensions in going to the troubled nation.

Formula One chief Bernie Ecclestone was asked to re-examine the decision.

FIA had pushed the Indian race to December to accommodate the Bahrain GP but now it seems that the Indian GP could now be held as scheduled.
