Bahrain seeks “Illegal’s”

In what seems to be a different side of Formula 1. There have been reports of several persons being sought by the Bahrain government for not leaving the country upon their Formula 1 visa’s expiration.

Reportedly 9,000 F1 visas were issued, but the government estimates that 700 people have not left the country upon the visa’s expiring. It’s also claimed that apparently this tactic has been used previously for women of the night posing as F1 race fans to gain access into the country.
