Apr.19 (GMM) Bahrain's grand prix chief on Thursday played down the incident that caused a member of the Force India team to pull out of the event.
The team member was granted permission by Force India chiefs to head back to the UK, after a rented van carrying his colleagues was caught up in a Molotov cocktail attack on the return trip from the circuit late on Wednesday."They weren't targeted. They just happened to be there," said the Sakhir circuit's chairman Zayed R Alzayani, according to the BBC."It could happen in any place in the world really, getting caught up in a riot or a fight or anything."He admitted there will "probably" be more incidents before the weekend is out."I don't think they will be within the track or close to the track, and I think they will be handled in the right way."As for his advice to race-goers, Alzayani insisted: "Don't be too worried and too distracted not to enjoy the weekend."In a provided media statement on Thursday, the Bahrain International Circuit said Force India was caught up in an "isolated incident".
