Enge loses Formula 3000 title

The FIA World Motor Sport Council has ruled that Tomas Enge will be excluded from the results of the Hungarian Formula 3000 race this year - which means that the title goes to his rival Sebastian Bourdais. The ruling came after Enge was found to have tested positive in a random dope test after the event.

The FIA also ruled that Enge's licence be suspended for 12 months but this sanction was itself suspended on condition that Enge be willing to submit himself to random dope tests at any time. The decision seems to be an attempt to save Enge's career as a 12-month ban would probably have destroyed any chances the Czech driver has to get into Formula 1.
