FIA raises minimum weight for 2010

FIA raises minimum weight for 2010
Governing body keen to see widespread KERS usage

KERS currently penalises drivers such as Robert Kubica
The minimum car-plus-driver weight in Formula One next year will increase.

The FIA has apparently responded to calls to raise the limit, following complaints that the sport is becoming a ‘jockey's competition’ due to the addition of the relatively heavy KERS packages.

Most drivers endeavoured to shed kilograms over the winter period, as they mused the addition of up to 40kg in the form of the new energy re-use technology, but no corresponding increase in the minimum weight of 605kg.

The governing FIA on Thursday published the 2010 technical regulations, showing an increase in the weight from 605 to 620kg.
