MANAMA - Formula One drivers will race in Bahrain on Sunday while rage boils on the streets outside, among protesters who denounce the Grand Prix as a gaudy spectacle by a ruling family that crushed Arab Spring demonstrations last year.

Demonstrators hurling petrol bombs have clashed nightly with police this week, and security forces responded with teargas, rubber bullets and birdshot.
