F1 Chief Bernie Ecclestone had expressed concerns over the safety of the first race of the 2011 season.
There is growing political unrest in the region, and the Grand Prix has been mentioned by protesters as a potential global platform on which to make their point known.

The situation will be monitored closely before a decision is made.
