Amnesty International claims the situation in Bahrain has not improved since the 2011 grand prix was cancelled – and says Formula 1 risks being used as a political tool by allowing next weekend’s race to go ahead. After weeks of debate and controversy, the FIA announced on Friday that there was no reason why the 2012 Bahrain GP could not take place as scheduled on 20-22 April. But human rights group Amnesty released a briefing on the Bahrain situation later in the day, in which it accused the Gulf state’s government of trying to present an image of change rather than tackling its issues, and suggested F1 was a factor in this process

With the governing body’s decision to reinstate the Bahrain Grand Prix onto the 2011 schedule having drawn widespread criticism, and with drivers and teams seeking assurances about the safety of themselves and their personnel if the race does go ahead, Todt says that the FIA will continue to monitor the political situation in the build-up to the race. “If we have clear evidence that there is a risky situation this will obviously be taken into consideration,” Todt told the BBC .

Yvan Muller was fastest in an incident-filled first qualifying session for the World Touring Car Championship finale at Macau on Friday, as fading light forced organisers to delay the shoot-out element until Saturday.

Valtteri Bottas was fastest in a crash-filled first practice session for the Macau Grand Prix – but there was only 0.010 seconds separating him from his nearest rival, last year’s winner Edoardo Mortara.

With laptimes steadily improving throughout the session, Bottas moved to the top of the timesheet with 10 minutes remaining – shortly before practice was brought to a premature halt when Signature’s Daniel Abt crashed into the barriers at R Bend
