LOL! I was thinking the same thing. God help them anyway. He won't make the same mistakes, nor will the same situations likely present themselves (..i.e..the 10 lap maximum, etc. etc.) this season. They rest of the grid is going to be frustrated again.

Not quite.

Ant West was, for some reason, harshly targeted to be excluded from most of the season's results for unknowingly consuming a substance that affects you little more than a strong cup of coffee. And that's seen as trying to gain an advantage.

Then you have another rider that alters their body surgically to increase the amount of air they intake. Similar to altering the air intake (and consequently fueling) in an engine. To me that's a bigger performance advantage, and one that can't happen by accident, like drinking an energy drink without examining the ingredients list and consulting FIM's banned substances list first.

Just an interesting factoid.
