Hopefully this is a sign of some good news for the people of Bahrain and F1 fans around the world.

The situation of course is forever changing and violent protest can build in a very short space of time.

But Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone is now hopeful that the current unrest in Bahrain will blow over in time for the F1 circus to roll into town.

‘Our people there say ‘it’s quiet, no problems’.

‘I’m more hopeful today. I hope we don’t have to do anything. Let’s hope this all blows away.’
The F1 maestro told the beeb.

Bernie had previously stated that a decision regarding the opening race of the Formula One calendar would be made next week and had appeared to be of the belief that the race would have to be cancelled.
