Bahrain stupid to host GP - Ecclestone

Formula 1 boss Bernie Ecclestone says the Bahrain government are "stupid" to host a Grand Prix, because of the opportunity it presents to political protestors.

The event two years ago was first postponed and later cancelled after month-long pro-democracy protests were crushed.

Asked by BBC Sport's Dan Roan whether he would ever consider taking F1 to other countries experiencing political unrest, such as Syria, Ecclestone replied: "We'd have to have a look and see."
