The International Automobile Federation, the governing body for Formula One racing, has agreed to subject its competitions to international anti-doping regulations.
The FIA World Motor Sport Council met in Paris and decided to adopt the World Anti-Doping Agency's rules. The decision brings Formula One into line with other signatories to the WADA code.
Drivers who are sanctioned under the new rules can appeal their penalties to FIA.
Meanwhile, the FIA Medical Commission banned drivers from wearing jewelry, including heavy chains and body piercings, during races.
