Seemingly unfazed at being ousted from the Asian Athletics Association, scam-tainted Suresh Kalmadi on Monday said losing the presidential re-election bid to Qatar’s Dahlan Jumaan Al-Hamad has actually given him a chance to work at the “grassroots” level.
“I have no issues today and I congratulate Mr Al-Hamad for being elected as President. I am rather relieved that I will be able to work at the grassroots level in athletics,” Mr. Kalmadi said after losing the vote during the ongoing AAA Congress in Pune.

Hamilton unfazed by Schumacher’s decision to retire from F1London - McLaren ace driver Lewis Hamilton has said that he does not feel guilty about forcing legendary Formula 1 driver Michael Schumacher to his second retirement.

When asked for his take on Schumacher’s decision to retire at the season end, Hamilton said: “I don’t have a reaction.”

According to the Sun, the 27-year-old British driver’s decision to quit McLaren and join Mercedes had forced the seven-time world champion to bid adieu to the sport for a second time in his Formula One career.

The 43-year-old veteran had wanted to stay with the Brackley-based team but the opportunity to sign Hamilton was too good for Mercedes to turn down, paper added.

Schumacher had announced his decision to retire from Formula One on Thursday.

Schumacher has finished on the podium only once since he came out of retirement in 2010 and that came in Valencia this year when Hamilton crashed out.
