FIA Not Down With the Booger Sugar

Apparently the FIA has something against Colombia and its special brand of marching powder. While in pre-European Mexico, it was just fine for Montezuma to lay on the shore with his coca leaves and pearls, it is apparently not — in the sport-arbiting organization's estimation — okay to drive a racing car with traces of cocaine in one's system, something that Luca Moro found out the hard way after testing positive post-Spa 24 Hours.

We too, are against pre-race coke snorting. Instead, we think the FIA should mandate that F1 drivers take a big hit of the crack rock out of a shattered Xenon bulb on the starting line and then run on a World of Outlaws-spec dirt track for 10 laps. Now that would put the energy back into Formula One! Bill France, Jr., you steal this idea and you're through. Through y'hear?
