And after all, why does the weight rule include
the driver? I have firmly thought all along since day one.. wouldn't logically a lighter weight car with a heavier driver.. be faster??
I would expect just the opposite - with a lighter driver, one can play more with the weight distribution of the car, and put the extra weight where it will do the most good. With a "extra value size" driver, there's more of the weight that will be in one place, with no way to shift it around to tune the handling.
Or at least that would be my guess.
