    Drivers such as Nico Hulkenberg may lose out, as they will be forced to lose weight to stay competitive.

    I'll bet if Hulkenberg had ended up at Lotus, they wouldn't have been opposing the increase in minimum car weight limit.

    I'm sorry to say that together with Pirelli, Bernie and the rest of F1 management, has slowly but surely messed up the best and most popular event in the world.
    No more is the general enthusiasm as great as it once was, where drivers were pitted against one another in outright ability, and not as now being proposed to hand someone double points at the end of the season, just to manipulate a alternate result.

    Poor,poor decisions by senile administrators.....

    I agree with the above comment. It's become more and more false and turnng into a bit of a circus. I love F1 but decisions like double points for one race at the end of the season just make a bit of a mockery of it all.
