F1 Commission agreed on the implementation plan minimum weight for pilots in season 2019, according to Spanish newspaper Marca.
This issue was discussed at yesterday’s meeting of the Strategic group F1 in London. This initiative could be implemented in 2018, however she has not received the necessary support.
However, this is only a preliminary discussion of the edits, so the unanimous support of the proposal for the season-2019 was not required, which allowed us to put the issue on the agenda of the Commission F1, which voted for it.
According to this innovation, the weight of the pilot will be monitored separately from the weight of the car. For the riders will establish the minimum weight limit at around 80 kg. In that case, if the pilot weighs less than this limit, his car will be installed the ballast to achieve the desired edge layer.
Due to the fact that the minimum weight of cars was increased, including due to installation security cockpit “halo” high racers are at a disadvantage. While the new system will put pilots in more equal conditions.
