10:41pm UK, Monday February 21, 2011
The opening round of the 2011 Formula 1 season in Bahrain has been cancelled as anti-government street protests continue.
Crown Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa said Bahrain had decided to withdraw in order to focus on "overcoming tragedy and healing divisions".
He was speaking after a week in which at least eight protesters have been killed.
F1 racing legend Sir Jackie Stewart told Jeff Randall Live that the Bahrain Grand Prix is one of the most popular in the racing calendar.
"Bahrain turned out to be a very business comfortable nation to deal with, it was very business friendly and that culture was much appreciated by the F1 community.
