Max Mosley is once again welcome on the island Kingdom of Bahrain, Crown Prince Sheikh Salman bin Hamad al-Khalifa insists.

Max Mosley is once again welcome on the island Kingdom of Bahrain, Crown Prince Sheikh Salman bin Hamad al-Khalifa insists.

The FIA president was asked to stay away from the event last year, while he was gripped in an allegedly racially-themed sex scandal.

Mosley, who was subsequently backed by FIA members and won legal action against the tabloid newspaper News of the World, never intended visiting Bahrain this season.

But he is now welcome, the Crown Prince told the Times newspaper at the Sakhir track.

"Yes, absolutely. He was cleared and re-elected," he said. "And as long as the court case and the re-election has taken place, he is the representative of the FIA and therefore is due respect and is welcome."
