Manama, April 20 (BNA)— British F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone dismissed all fears surrounding Bahrain Grand Prix race on Bahrain International Circuit (BIC) track, in Sakhir.

In statements to journalists from the circuit today, he said: " I cannot call this race off… We have an agreement."

He added that any decision to cancel the race rests with the Bahraini authorities.

He also strongly criticized the press for bringing off the scenario of continued tension in Bahrain which will harm the race. He said: "This amuses you. You want a story to write about and that's all… If there is no story, you make up one… Nothing has changed."
