So before proposing a change in the date for the Bahrain GP, wasn’t it Ecclestone’s responsibility to get the teams to agree to the rescheduled date? This should have been done before the World Council meet and not after a week of the race being reinstated. #Auto racing #Bahrain Grand Prix #Formula One #LifeInTheFastLane
