Interesting problem for F1 drivers. Next year's engine is going to be heavier than expected. As a result, drivers' weight is going to be important to lap times.

Among those likely to be affected are such notables as Jenson Button, Louis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg. Button is trying to get the drivers association to pressure for a higher minimum weight for the cars, so that larger drivers like him aren't penalized.
