Formula One supremo Bernie Ecclestone has defended the controversial decision to reinstate this year's Bahrain Grand Prix, citing "unusual circumstances"
The race is now scheduled to take place on October 30th, with the Indian GP pushed back to December 11.
But the race could again be scrapped as teams are currently believed to be unwilling to race in Bahrain.
As well as believing the race should not go ahead for moral reasons, teams have concerns over insurance, while sponsors could also be unwilling to get involved.
But speaking to Press Association Sport, Ecclestone said: "The truth of the matter is, this was voted on by the FIA, that was it. It went through the World Council.
"The FIA sent people out there to check on the situation, they came back and reported everything is fine.
"It’s obvious that everybody feels they need to be safe when we get there.
"In the end we’ll have to wait and see what happens in Bahrain. If there is peace and no problems then I suppose the teams will be all right."
Teams have reportedly told Ecclestone that they do not wish to be racing in December.
"Of course they’d rather not be racing in December, but these are unusual circumstances," he added.
