A Force India member has asked to return home ahead of the Bahrain GP after four of the team's mechanics were caught up in firebomb attack.
The four mechanics were driving in a hire car on the outskirts of the capital Manama when they got caught up in clashes between protestors and police.
Although a firebomb landed near their vehicle, no one was injured in the incident and they returned to their hotel soon after.
According to BBC Sport, a team member not involved in the incident then asked to return to the United Kingdom.
A spokesman also said that the team were not the target of the attack.
Meanwhile, Bahrain International Circuit chairman Zayed R Alzayani played down the incident.
"It was an isolated incident, and my wife was involved too," he is quoted as saying by Autosport.
"The protestors were not targeting the cars, they just happened to be there. Nobody was injured.
"I don't command the police; they know what to do better than I do. I have a race to run."
what do you think?
My god , man. I can barely understand a word. Try stringing one sentence together, in the Queens English, before you rip into the unions.Obviously a Tory, using every opportunity to attack the opposition. This is not even remotely connected to the British political scene, so why don't you just toddle off down to your local conservative club. There's a lot more imbisciles like yourself, looking for a fellow tard.
what happens next time if it kicks off near the race circuit?
Yet another exadurated title to sensationolise a story. The title staits that they were fire bombed yet when you read the story it totaly contradicts the title. To say someone was firebomed is to say they were hit by said firebomb or were targeted and this is not the case they were not hit by the fire bomb nore were they even the intended targets
Did someone fire bomb your school. ?
whats that got to do with the story aa aa please go act like a troll else where
