Stewart criticises Bahrain GP axe calls

Sir Jackie Stewart believes anyone calling for the Bahrain Grand Prix to be cancelled due to unrest in the Gulf state are "out of order".

A week of protests is taking place to coincide with this weekend's race, organised by the opposition to the ruling royal family.

Stewart, responding to calls from a group of British MPs to cancel the race, says that "sport unites people", and that Formula 1 in Bahrain is "very important for this region".
