Have you ever wondered why F1 drivers get weighed immediately after a race? Well, here is why...

When a Grand Prix finally comes to an end, and your stress levels have died down knowing that your favourite driver has been beaten yet again by Lewis Hamilton, a few things happen. One of the things you'll notice is that the drivers are immediately requested to proceed inside to get weighed with their full driving kit on, including their helmet.

To put it simply, it's all got to do with keeping the sport as fair as possible between the race teams. With the new regulations, each car together with the driver must weigh at least 752kg. The reason why they don't weigh the drivers at the beginning of the race is because it would be far too easy to cheat the system by drinking lots of water to meet the weight requirements, and then sweat it all out during the race!
