Indefinitely postponed after the March 13th race was canceled, the FIA has reportedly given the green light for the Bahrain Grand Prix to return to the Formula 1 schedule this season.

“Mabrook, Bahrain, will host f1”, tweeted Fawaz Al Khalifa, the head of the country’s information affairs authority, adding that a date is being worked out now.

The news comes after a meeting of F1’s World Motor Sport Council and just as the Bahrain government lifted an emergency rule on Wednesday.

The FIA has yet to confirm these reports, but the race is believed to take place on October 30th (the former date of the Indian GP), which would then be pushed back to as late as December.
