F1 Driver Asked To Go On A Crash Diet As His “Car” Is Overweight

Published on 26 March, 2017 at 1:28 pm By

India’s very Formula One racing team “The Sahara Force India” has asked its driver Sergio Perez to go on a crash diet ahead of March 26 Australian Grand Prix race so as to compensate for an “overweight car”.

Sergio, who was training this winter on building his upper body strength, had put on some weight so as to adapt to the new regulations that will help subject F1 drivers to greater G forces in cornering making cars lap significantly faster.

“I tried so hard to lose weight in the last couple of weeks since Barcelona (testing). Obviously, I increased my weight from last year purely by training harder, putting on muscle, but I was on an extreme diet all last week and still now…I am all the time very hungry.”

Under F1 regulations the cars need to have a minimum weight limit, minus fuel but with driver included. This weight has been increased this season with the aim to carry as little extra as possible for maximum lap advantage.



 

Hoping to gain this additional advantage Sergio and his French team mate Esteban Ocon put on five kilos of muscle over the winter and so did other drivers in the racing business.

But Sergio was later asked to lose weight so as to compensate for his car which is “overweight”.

He has lost nearly two or three kilos since Barcelona testing and is expected to be able to put the lost muscle back once the Sahara team is happy with the reliability and can take the extra weight out of the car.
