FIA has given organisers of the Bahrain GP one more month (till June 3) to decide whether it will be possible to hold the F1 race this season. The Bahrain GP was supposed to be the season opener on March 13, but was postponed due to political unrest in the Arab world. The original deadline for the decision was May 1.

The Bahrainis released a statement over the weekend, but didn’t commit to any date. “Clearly our national priority is to find a resolution to the difficulties that the kingdom of Bahrain has experienced. The national situation has moved on in a positive manner, the situation is evolving all the time; our day-to-day life is gradually improving under the current State of National Safety

“Bahrain’s grand prix is a time of celebration and hosting the race is a source of great pride for Bahrain and Bahrainis. It is a showcase to the world and we look forward to welcoming the teams and drivers and everyone involved in Formula 1 back to Bahrain in the very near future,” said circuit chairman said Zayed Rashid Alzayani.

Meanwhile, this season’s new F1 destination, India, has given a name to their circuit. The Buddh International Circuit, about 40 km outside New Delhi in Greater Noida, is named after the Gautam Buddh Nagar district where it located at. Buddh will host the inaugural Indian GP on October 30.
