F1 faces schedule squeeze, says Red Bull boss Horner
Bahrain postponement was right decision - Horner
Red Bull chief Christian Horner has admitted it will be tough to fit the recently postponed Bahrain Grand Prix back into the 2011 Formula 1 calendar.
The race, set to be the season-opener on 13 March, was called off because of civil unrest in the small Gulf kingdom.
No decision has been made on a new date, with the now 19-race calendar set to climax in Brazil on 27 November.
"It will certainly be a challenge to accommodate. But nothing is ever impossible," Horner told BBC Sport.
"It's a very busy calendar this year. Already now, at the end of November, we'll have finished 19 races."
As F1 tries to grow the sport globally, the sport's governing body added one extra race for the 2011 season after running 19 Grands Prix in the 2010 season, which started in Bahrain on 14 March and finished in Abu Dhabi on 14 November.
The 2009 campaign, by contrast, contained 17 races. It also started later, on 29 March, and finished earlier, on 1 November.
