Vettel votes against Bahrain rescheduling

By on Thursday, March 3, 2011

Mar.3 (GMM) If Sebastian Vettel was in charge of formula one, he would not reschedule the 2011 Bahrain grand prix.

With political protests still ongoing in the island Kingdom, it has been suggested that either an August or November date is likely if Bernie Ecclestone and the FIA do reinstate the postponed race later this season.

The problem with August is that temperatures in Bahrain are likely to be pushing 40 degrees, while the date would also interfere with F1's summer break.

A pairing with Abu Dhabi in November, meanwhile, would create a strenuous triple back-to-back 'flyaway' race scheduling at the tail-end of an already busy calendar.

"The end of a season is already stressful enough, and we seem to have enough races anyway," reigning world champion Vettel reportedly told Finland's Turun Sanomat at the Geneva motor show.
