dread. the minimum weights are already adjusted to allow heavier drivers. all cars are well underweight, and are then ballasted, so that weight of car and driver comes up to the minimum. that is why drivers have to be weighed after the event. one enterprising team had water ballast which they dropped during the race to make their car lighter. the same team then gave their driver a heavy jacket before he stepped on the scales. the same team also had a heavy and a light rear wing.....never penalised!!
but as regards aero, the fia have a lot to answer for. when the new exhaust rule was brought in this year to prevent diffuser blowing, the intention was a straight pipe as of old, above bodywork. it was not to have any aero effect. teams developed the coanda, and so affected aero. the fia did NOTHING. it should have been nipped in the bud.
