Here's another interesting twist for next year.

Apparently all of the teams are having trouble getting down to minimum weight. It could be a huge advantage for smaller drivers like Alonso.

I always hated the rule change that required the car and driver to be weighed together.


The thing that is so unfair, some of the really good drivers are in ultra trim condition but despite having <3% body weight would still be at a disadvantage next season.


I see it the other way around. It's a small man's sport.

The NBA doesn't make their seven-footers shoot from their knees. Why should the smaller drivers have to carry around extra ballast?

So now we are going to get rid of excellent drivers because they aren't anorexic?

It's wrong. We would have missed so many great drivers over time if they had similar rules in the past.

The cars were weighed without the drivers until fairly recently (1995, I believe).

Vettel wins a 4th straight crown.

God I hope next season is more exciting.
