Weight limits disgraceful - Mansell
- From the section Formula 1
Nigel Mansell says proposed weight limits in Formula 1 are "disgraceful" and "discrimination against the medium-sized large driver".
The 1992 F1 and 1993 IndyCar champion says drivers are "not jockeys" and advocates making lighter cars carry ballast "so that the bigger drivers don't suffer as much".
Having a heavier driver could potentially put teams at a disadvantage in 2014 following regulation changes, with 1kg of weight equating to about 0.035secs a lap on an average circuit.
