F1 » Romain Grosjean wins 2012 Race of Champions

I was there, and can say with all honesty that he drove faultlessly. A tight Mickey Mouse track where the smallest of errors punished the driver, Grosjean did not put a wheel out of line all night. Vettel was looking very strong all night until he hit the barrier with the rear wheel of the KTM X-Bow, and broke a wishbone or something. Not a RG fan, but he did deserve the win.

MotoGP » Anthony West fails anti-doping test

@Ady It is not a "Card" it is a very comprehensive book. The rider has enough on his plate with training, bike set-up, and general focus. The job of checking medication goes to his trainer. If you do really work in health care(broad area) you might know that certain drugs(such as nasal sprays) have different ingredients in different countries. Vicks in UK, is not the same as Vicks in the USA, even though the packaging is the same. A friend of mine(Alain Baxter) lost a winter Olympic medal in just such circumstances. Humans make honest mistakes at times you know! So it is not as clear as you might think.

MotoGP » Anthony West fails anti-doping test

The anti-doping rules in all pro sports are so strict that athletes(riders) have to be amazingly careful with what they take. Most average people take over the counter remedies for common ailments that would cause them to fail a test. I spent some years in a competitive sport that was governed with drug testing, and the book of band substances was hundreds of pages thick. What this article does not say is the levels in Ant's blood. It is very likely, trace(which is so small it would have no effect), however the rules do not allow for any margin. Just sad that those who have little or no knowledge of this immediately conjure up images of the athlete injecting themselves with syringes of juice, and floating around the room! The fact that he has only been given a short ban would suggest it is not serious.

MotoGP » Oil leak stifles Rossi progress

I see comments about the 07 Duke here again. What we should not forget is that in 07 it turned largely into a tyre driven championship, with Bridgestone pumping in cast domes of money to build tyres for Ducati, with Yamaha on the inferior Michelin. No matter how good a bike or rider is it is very difficult to overcome a rubber disadvantage. That's not to take anything away from Stoner. Just pointing out that it was far from a level playing field.
