Bernie Ecclestone the shrewd and controversy loving ring master of F1 has been making noises about extending the deadline for the Bahrain GP organisors to come out with a date for later this year.  Bernie is obviously not willing to lose the revenues from TV if the race gets cancelled.  But the FIA under the phlegmatic Jean Todt does not seem to be in a mood to relent.  The FIA has stated clearly that the deadline is in place and that the Bahrain GP organisors have to give an answer by the 1st of May, 2011, which is tomorrow.  We believe that there will be no Bahrain GP this year and also possibly in the years to come.  That will be alright since there are so many new venues coming up.
