The withdrawal of the Bahrain Grand Prix from the Formula 1 calendar also means the final rounds of the GP2 Asia Series will not take place in the country.
After the opening rounds of GP2 Asia in Abu Dhabi, Bahrain was set to host the final two visits. The second round was canceled last week and now the grand prix weekend finale has also been called off.
GP2 boss Bruno Michel said: "We are very sad to see Bahrain removed from this season's calendar. It is always a great pleasure to go there, where we have been cordially welcomed with professionalism since 2005. We are looking forward to going back there soon."
A statement from GP2 did not confirm whether it will seek a replacement venue, or whether the Asia Series will end after just one event.
