Ferrari clearly favouring Vettel, says Hamilton
MONACO Ferrari are giving Sebastian Vettel the Michael Schumacher treatment, according to the German's main title rival Lewis Hamilton.
Olympic speed skating silver medallist Chris Creveling will miss next year's Winter Games in Pyeongchang after being given a four-year ban for testing positive for a prohibited substance, the US Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has said.
Creveling, who won silver in the 5,000 metres relay at the Winter Games in Sochi in 2014, tested positive for testosterone-booster clomiphene in an out-of-competition test taken in October.
Creveling's ban had been backdated to Nov. 18 last year, the day he accepted a provisional suspension, and he had been "disqualified from all competitive results obtained on and subsequent to October 18, 2016," USADA said in a statement.
