Formula 1's governing body has confirmed the Bahrain Grand Prix will go ahead on 22 April.
The decision comes after speculation about the event in the Gulf state, in which civil unrest has continued since protests in February 2011.
The FIA has been under pressure to call off the race amid security concerns.
But a statement said it was "satisfied that all the proper security measures are in place for the running of a Formula 1 world championship event".
F1 boss Bernie Ecclestone said he was "200%" certain the race would go ahead, but added there remained scope for it to be called off.
