Formula 1 News' take on developments in Bahrain:

>> In recent days a Danish company called Henning Larsens Tegnestue has announced plans to build a skyscraper in Bahrain which will be twice as tall as the world's current tallest building - at a startling 1022m.

>> On Sunday seven vehicles belonging to construction companies were set on fire by protesters. These demonstrations are designed to draw attention to the tensions in the country, just as the riot that took place during the Grand Prix weekend in March was meant to do.

>> Perhaps economic development will eventually filter down to the man on the street and unrest will subside but Formula 1 needs to be aware and to watch developments carefully in the months and years ahead.
