Force India team members to leave

LONDON -- Two members of the Force India team have decided to leave Bahrain, including one person who was in a team vehicle that was briefly delayed by a firebomb.

The bomb exploded Wednesday night in Bahrain's capital of Manama, causing a Force India van with four team members to be delayed in traffic on its way from the Bahrain Grand Prix circuit back to its hotel. No one in the vehicle was hurt.

Force India spokesman Will Hings said the four team members were back at the track on Thursday, but later told The Associated Press that one of them was leaving the country and heading back to Europe.

Hings said another member of the team who was not in the delayed vehicle was also leaving.

"They were just people working for the team," he said.
