The Bahrain International Circuit and the FIA have confirmed reports the troubled island Kingdom's postponed race date has been rescheduled for 2011. The F1 world is awaiting further details but the Bahrain grand prix has definitely been rescheduled for 2011.

Sheikh Fawaz al-Khalifa, the island Kingdom's information affairs chief, 'tweeted' earlier on Friday that the FIA is in the process of deciding the race's new date after the Barcelona meeting of the World Motor Sport Council.
