    I think there should be a minimum car weight and a minimum driver weight as well, with weight added to make the driver weight reasonably attainable by anyone that isn't a horse jockey. F1 seats should not be the sole preserve of midgets.
    Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone............

    I can see that change you suggest would make F1 the domain of the midgets, as the heavier guys overall car driver weight would be higher, so the team would not hire them, as they would be slower due to extra weight

    The link to the article in my first post indicates that driver weight was a big issue on 2014, so in 2015 the car weight was increased by 10 kg. Seems like Red Bull are using the extra headroom in weight in the car design.
