Egyptian President was in Bahrain

The President of Egypt Hosni Mubarak was a guest at the recent Bahrain Grand Prix but he allowed other guests to take the limelight. The impressive list of VIPs included King Juan-Carlos of Spain, King Abdullah of Jordan, King Mohamed of Morocco, Prince Albert of Monaco, Prince Andrew, the Duke of York.

Egypt had in the past shown interest in hosting an F1 event and this year the Sauber team has a modest sponsorship from an Egyptian company, which was involved in bidding for an Egyptian GP.
