Ferrari team has ordered its Formula 1 race team personnel to avoid the streets of Bahrain this week, Speed Week’s Mathias Brunner reports from the venue of this weekend’s grand prix.

Brunner said the Italian team has told its mechanics and the other few dozen members of its travelling race team to either be at the Formula 1 circuit or holed up in the Regency Intercontinental hotel.

Even visits to restaurants, bars and coffee houses are strictly prohibited for Ferrari staff in Bahrain, Brunner added, with the only exception being short cigarette breaks.

Brunner wrote: “The situation in the city is quiet and relaxed.” (GMM)
