The FIA is preparing a statement to announce the cancellation of the Bahrain Grand Prix, sources in the paddock reveal to F1Today.net. It is expected that the statement will be published on the Thursday in China, one week before the scheduled race at Sakhir.

The situation in Bahrain still isn't safe enough to host a Formula 1 race, according to the FIA. The Bahrain Grand Prix was dropped from the calendar last year after violent clashes between the police and protesters against the regime.
