Ahead of the season-opening Australian Grand Prix, at least three drivers were tested for drug use by the World Anti-Doping Agency.

In the early hours of Tuesday morning last week, Ferrari driver Fernando Alonso, McLaren's Sergio Perez and Daniel Ricciardo of Toro Rosso were picked by the organisation for the random test.

“All of a sudden pissing in your own home becomes difficult with someone staring over your shoulder,” Ricciardo mentioned on his Twitter page.

Alonso confirmed that his test was done at 6.42am on the day via his account on the social media website.

Mark Webber had urged motorsport’s governing-body, the FIA, in November last year to step up drug testing in F1. This was shortly after it was revealed that world-renowned American cyclist Lance Armstrong was charged with cheating with the help of banned substances.
