Manama, Apr 25 (ANI): Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone has revealed that he would be 'happy' to come back to Bahrain with the F1 again next year.
"I like Bahrain. It's fair to say I have not met any people from Bahrain that I do not like and I have been going there a long time. I'd be happy to go back. There's no reason why we shouldn't after we've been there this year," the Daily Mirror quoted Ecclestone, as saying.
Mercedes boss Ross Brawn has reportedly called for an investigation into the process by which the decision to go to the embattled nation of Bahrain was taken by Bernie's company.
However, he revealed that he wasn't in the favour of the banners which had F1's symbol planted in the middle of the word 'Unified', which were widely distributed around Bahrain and triggered a furious reaction from protestors, following which he asked for the controversial banners to be taken down.
"We never put it there. We told them to take it down, not to use it. I saw other things, not like that," Ecclestone clarified.
Ecclestone was rather convinced that F1 had actually helped the nation deal with its problems. If F1 wasn't there do you think any journalists would have gone there to report? They would have gone to Syria if they wanted to report on a war," he added. (ANI)
