Gridfire, your comment is in the wrong thread, it belongs in the other Bahraini one.
How about if I append the obvious conclusion to my statements: "Therefore, I watched the Bahrain GP without compunction"?

I'm not a mod, but in the other Bahrain thread is a discussion about Islamic attitudes towards monarchy.
My post was my explanation for why I watched the Bahrain GP without guilt, any attitudes toward monarchy that I expressed were only my own. If it was preferred I had written "Yes." in direct reply to the thread title without any explanation, then perhaps that should have been mentioned in the opening post.

And the attitude of a lot of the fans is putting me off the sport altogether.
The people who are saying they will watch it no matter what, would they have been watching the races in the very dangerous years, when drivers were getting killed pretty regularly ?
Most definitely yes.

I possess no self control, so no matter how hard I want to boycott it I will still find myself watching at lap 1 and wondering how I got there. Of course, if the race is like Valencia then I will be boycotting it.;)
In the end I didn't. That death of the activist was too much.
Not giving the heartless dwarf any more ratings bragging rights if I can. Plus I can't stand Vettel.

I know it made zero difference in the big picture, but I couldn't watch any part of the coverage for this race. I am thankful that more people were not killed or injured during the GP weekend. For the F1 circus, they had their race but there were no "winners."
Even Vettel, who the record books will show as the race winner, came across badly with his "hype" comment. No matter how many people want to sell this event as a huge success, everyone comes away damaged, especially the sport of F1.
As someone who has attended two GPs this season, it will probably be a while before I find my enthusiasm again for F1.
