    "There's no risk that Jenson Button might choke on a high-powered stream of expensive champagne after this Sunday's inaugural Formula One podium in Bahrain.

    Race-organisers have requested that, in respect of Islamic law, alcohol and scantily-clad grid-girls should play no part in the running of the Grand Prix.

    Sparkling-water is the likely fizzy substitute, although when sponsored by a Saudi company in the 80s, Williams' Alan Jones sprayed orange-juice in victory."

    It's weird, yeah, but it's not the first time something had to be changed due to a country's laws (tobacco anyone?).

    Why does the F1 have to be there? You would think people would bend over backwards to get to have the F1 race held at their establishment not the other way around.

    Doesn't bother me too much...as long as they keep the girls for the races I'm physically at. For the other races I don't usually watch any coverage apart from the time the cars are on the track anyways :)
