F1: A skinny man’s sport, now getting skinnier


Now, I’m not one to brag about thin, because I’m really not, I’m about 5’8″ and 180 lbs, but there wouldn’t be any way that I would be able to compete in F1 and run well. And next year, with KERS being mandated that will add some unwanted weight in the cars, some of the taller (while not necessarilly fat) drivers like Robert Kubica (who is about 6’1″) and Mark Webber (also 6’1″ and weighs about 155 lbs) feel that they will be at an unfair disadvantage.

Webber said today that he feels all drivers tipping the scales at over 70 kg (about 155 lbs) will be penalised with the introduction of the KERS system and that it is “a concern for all the heavy drivers like me.”
