But the good news for The Hulk is that from , driver weight will now be considered separately to the car, rather than as combined figure, which for is kg.
A minimum weight for a driver will be mandated. If a driver weighs less than that, a team will need to use ballast to bring them up to the minimum weight.
It also reduces the need for drivers to cut their calorie intake in a bid to force their weight down, which in turn reduces the potential health risks of such a strategy.
The move will also benefit teams who decide their driver line-up late in the day, as the driver no longer needs to be taken into account when a team finalises their car weight.
The new generation of F1 cars are spectacular to watch. But that has come at a cost, namely heavier cars and more downforce, which has led to more time on the gas and therefore more fuel burned.
With the race fuel allowance set at kg, this has forced drivers to at times lift and coast in a bid to save fuel and get to the end of the race, rather than being able to push flat out for the entire race distance.
Fuel saving has long been a part of motorsport at the highest level, but it is something that F1, the FIA and teams have been keen to do something about.
So it has been agreed that the allowance will be increased by 5kg to kg with the aim of allowing drivers to use the engine at full power at all times.
The most efficient engines will still be rewarded, while the thirstier engines will be punished. But it is hoped the move will ease the need to fuel save.
In the relentless pursuit of improving safety, the FIA has mandated that F1 drivers will be required to wear biometric gloves that will transmit potentially life-saving data from the driver to the at-track medical team.
The Spaniard was unhurt, but because the car had come to rest underneath the barrier, it was difficult for the medical team to assess his condition and communicate with him.
On Tuesday, the FIA confirmed its proposed engine regulations, which outlined a 1. The proposals were met with a positive response.
The FIA is to discuss the proposals with current and prospective engine manufacturers in the coming weeks. Pirelli expanded its tyre range for this year, moving a step softer with its existing compounds and adding the new hypersoft tyre.
Despite this, all but three of the 16 races held so far in have been won by drivers on a one-stop strategy. Speaking ahead of the Japanese Grand Prix at Suzuka, Hamilton said he will lobbying Pirelli to make even softer tyres in the future.
He also advocated lowering tread thickness, which Pirelli did this year for races in Barcelona, Silverstone and Paul Ricard, to combat overheating.
Maybe [then] we can be able to follow [other cars] and have more racing. Hamilton topped both Friday practice sessions at Suzuka, and radioed to Mercedes during FP2 that he was "having the best day" driving the W08 around the "awesome" Japanese venue.
Hamilton sends a message to Vettel. There's very little room for run-off, a little touch of the grass and you're off in the wall. It's probably one of my favourite circuits, if not the favourite.
Naturally it gets easier once you get to Turn 13 - got the long straight and R - it's easy from then for us. It's the best rollercoaster ride, that first section, that I've particularly felt in a Formula 1 car.
When you get in the car, it's just the best. It's honestly so much fun. The monster born out of Porsche's frustration After two record runs in a year of farewell touring, Porsche's Evo has been retired.
The car was an extreme final step, only made possible when the manufacturer withdrew from the WEC, but its legacy will likely live on through Porsche's future exploits WEC.
Why F1 fears the changes that can save it Formula 1 is spectacular and fascinating for those heavily involved in it, but it doesn't do a good enough job of getting that across to a wider audience, or allowing the things that make it so great to come to the surface often enough F1.
