Racing is famous for and maybe pioneering in it's habit of interviews "during the game." Chris Eckonomaki used to shove a mic inside a car during pit stops in the 70's. Modern tech. allows booth announcers to cut in on a teams radio frequency and talk to drivers...with the teams permission and usually during yellows, but still...

F1 drivers (the top three) are mandated to the press room as soon as the victory ceremony is complete. No locker room, no shower, immediately to the press to talk about the race, before even being able to see replays of any controversial incidents they might ask about.

Gold -- I still believe that the media should not interrupt competition. I saw it again Sunday night during the Red Sox-White Sox game. It's just not right.
