Ferrari’s Fernando Alonso and five other Formula One drivers gave no reply when asked at a Chinese Grand Prix news conference whether they might have any moral difficulty racing in Bahrain next week.
“Ultimately it is a car race. There are a hell of a lot of people in the world who don’t have a clue there is a grand prix in Bahrain next weekend so let’s not get too wrapped up in our own bubble about how important it is,” said Mark Webber, choosing his words slowly and carefully. “Things can get called off in a flash.”
