Ken Clarke hopes for 'restraint' ahead of Bahrain GP

I hope both sides show restraint, I deeply regret that someone appears to have been killed, obviously everybody is imploring them to keep down the level of violence, but I don't think the cancellation of the Grand Prix actually would make a very great deal of difference.

I don't think it's a matter for politicians in Britain to decide whether to or not. Essentially in the end it's up to Formula One and the people who the run the sport and the teams.
