Yea, take out the KERS and the power steering and it may change. KERS for the weight and power steering so these guys have to have enough forearm left after 2 hrs of racing to steer the thing.

My brother Fernando collapsed after a race in 09 trying to be as light as possible. His water bottle broke, but the starvation diet didn't help.

Same mentality that has ruined the world of fashion modeling. The people making the rules are also "fat asses"! He has a point about weight and strength versus light and supple and starved. Make more darn HP to overcome the weight differences. tongue.gif

They are leaving a huge slab wink.gif of talent on the table IMO. If Nico gets bumped because of his size (and he's not what you would call a big guy) I may quit following F1, and I've been following for a long ass time.
When there is such a thing as "minimum weight for a car and driver" this kind of thing is bound to happen.
I'm sure I don't have to remind everyone (all other things being equal) the lighter a car is the faster it will go around a track.

The answer to this dilemna is....well....

A.P.S. deserve our protection....join the cause today!

In the early '90's, my neighbor was a mechanic at Galles Racing. These were the guys that Al Unser Jr. was driving for when he got his first Indy 500 win. At the time, Eddie Lawson (former bike racer/champion) was driving their car. Long story short, I got a tour of the shop, and my bud asked if I wanted to sit in the car. At the time, I was in my early 30's, 5"11", maybe 180 lbs. I am not built like a jockey, but I was a long way from over weight. The damn seat in that car seemed to be about half the width required for me to slide my butt into that car. They did not have time to create a form fitting seat to the contours of MY BUTT :-) so that was that. Personally, I think it was a set-up, and they knew I would not fit, but it was good for a laugh.

So, drivers being built like jockeys is not really a new development. I think I recall Robby Gordon pissing and moaning when Danica came to Indy the first time because he had probably 90 pounds on her. I am curious to see how many pounds JP Montoya can lose before the start of the 2014 Indycar season.

As for F1 and without spilling any beans, some interesting results from FP1, of course, who knows what program each team was running..

The camera adds ten pounds wink.gif

Keep an eye on Webber. I read somewhere that he said "I haven't eaten in five years" Sometimes he looks like a skeleton covered in skin.

BTW T Stewart is skinny right now.

I agree it's nothing new, it just always made me mad. There was a time when I got all the way down on my weight, I'm talking the Webber skeletor look, passing out getting out of a hot tub too skinny, and I was still 205 lbs. The only motorsport that I got an advantage was the old "superbikes" with 19 in front tires. I could change directions quickly in quick left right lefts. The new stuff almost does it by itself.

I always liked the Unsers. Hope little Al has exorcised all his demons.

Me too. Little Al was my favorite driver for a long time. He won at Indy when I went in 1994. Closest finish in history at the time. Also most wrecks in history.
Its amazing how alcohol can take over someones life.

Interesting.
The drivers hear a beep in the headset to let them know they have entered the DRS zone and are allowed to use it. Always kinda wondered how that worked.
