Beginning tomorrow, and lasting for the duration of this race - Anonymous will turn your web site (www.formula1.com) into a smoking crater in cyber space. We will also jam your phone lines, bomb your E-Mail inboxes - and wreck anything else of yours we can find on the internet. You can god damn well expect us. And to anyone in the world who watches this race, either in person or on television - you also have the blood of the Bahrain Freedom Martyrs on your hands. Turn your face away from this abominable entertainment, and join us online to defend the brave protesters fighting for their freedom in Bahrain. Finally, we join with Anonymous Bahrain in asking that all the drivers in this race protest this evil regime by refusing to cross the start line at the beginning of the race.
I'm really hopeful that there is some sort of visible protest from the teams/drivers. Especially on the podium. Bernie has already strongly allied F1 with the current regime by appearing alongside the Crown Price when he was bullshitting to the cameras (claiming the opposition support the race? Seriously?). It's doing massive damage to the image of the sport.
Plus it forced me to agree with George Galloway when he ranted about it on Question Time. That's a killing offence in itself.
Are we sure he isn't senile? First he puts the New Jersey GP into panic mode when he brushes it aside and says it "might" happen next year, and now he's pissing off one of the main engine manufacturers. I'm sure McLaren will not be happy to see their engine supplier storm off into the sunset.
