Bahrain Grand Prix cancelled

The Bahrain Grand Prix has been postponed due to the civil unrest that has seen mass demonstrations in the country's capital city, Manama.

The race was due to take place on the weekend of 12-13 March, but now looks likely to take place at a later date. The first race of the 2011 Formula 1 season will now be the Australian Grand Prix on 27 March.
