First I am an F1 fan, my regular readers will know of my enthusiasm, I enjoy all motor sport and F1 is the pinnacle, it is high powered, high speed, international elite sport. It is a sport watched by millions all over the world, and I can't help thinking that it's presence in a country sends a message. On that basis I do not think that the Bahrain GP should have gone ahead, however o that basis maybe neither should the Chinese or maybe quite a few others over the years. So I don't think the race should have gone ahead, but I watched it anyway, and in many ways enjoyed the race.
We are having quite a season with four different teams, and drivers winning the four different races so far, and I think we have now had four different leaders of the Championship. This week Red Bull have passed McLaren in the constructors championship as McLaren had a dreadful race. I really feel for Jenson Button whose luck at the moment is terrible, indeed if he didn't have bad luck he would have no luck at all. I just hope that he has now got rid of all the bad luck in one single race and will be back to winning ways in Spain next time out.
