Imagine the British Grand Prix results not appearing until several days after the event. The media would go wild with speculation over who officially crossed the finish line in 16th place. They could rely on the uninformed rantings of motor racing website forums but imagine the vested interests of those posting their version of the results.
I reckon the boys and girls with the spreadsheets just fancy a rest after a brilliant weekend’s racing….and who would blame them.
Having said that…it would be nice to know where I came! 😉
They have to wait for the Police to investigate all the cheats before they can publish results without them in it, and they won’t want to publish results with the cheats in because that would give them legitimacy.
