This is funny but only makes sense.. .

I wonder if the Engineers are going to tell Danika to put on some weight so that their car can have ballast in the correct places :lol:

Interesting. At the indy race last year in Newton she came up and spoke with my wifes company a bit (they sponsor her) and I was amazed at how small of a person she is. She's tiny. She's hot, but tiny.

Also, this isn't an F1 topic, it's the new IRL/Champ thing.

It's totally the other way around. You want a flyweight driver so you CAN add ballast to exactly where you want it. That's one of the reasons why F1 has all the insanely lightweight components.

Minimum weight with driver is a good idea. (now do they make her get out of the car and weigh seperately like SCCA does? What a stupid rule THAT is)

Isn't the "get out to be weighed" due to our doing 2 wheels at a time?
