Williams statement after cancellation of Bahraini GP

By on

Following today’s announcement confirming the cancellation of the forthcoming Formula One test session and the 2011 FIA World Championship season opener in Bahrain, the Williams Formula One Team made the following statement:

Adam Parr, Chairman of Williams F1: “It is obviously disappointing for everyone involved in the organisation of the event, but it is clear that to race in Bahrain at this time would be inappropriate given the current circumstances. It is always Williams’ intention to contribute positively to the countries we compete in and so we fully support the Crown Prince’s decision to cancel the test and forthcoming Bahrain Grand Prix. We now look forward to a season debut in Melbourne and returning to Bahrain when it is right to do so.”

The team will now undertake the final winter test at Barcelona’s Circuit de Catalunya between 8 and 11 March 2011.
