Organisers of the Bahrain Grand Prix
insist they have taken all the security measures possible to ensure this weekend's maiden race in the Middle East goes ahead without incident.
The build-up to the historic race has been dominated by the issue of terrorist threats, with war-torn Iraq just 600 miles away.Formula One teams have
been told to be careful, although six-time world champion Michael Schumacher has insisted he has no fears about making the trip to the Gulf region.The
National Guard have also been placed on 24-hour alert while advice on anti-terrorist measures has been taken from the security forces.But the German,
who will be bidding to make it three wins out of three on Sunday, said of a possible threat.. "If you look in history how many times and where
attacks have been,it can be any time, any place."What can you do? You must do whatever you feel you have to do and whatever you feel is right to do.
