extrapolating that for the entire 53 lap race we are talking about more like 160kg, or even 175 adding 10% for having to carry the extra weight of fuel & the 15kg extra ballast in the rules next year. And that is not even taking into account that the teams will be trying to lower fuel consumption in an attempt to lower starting fuel loads and tire wear.
I do not anticipate any team to be starting with more than 150kg of fuel next year.
What is the highest fuel consumption track?
Hmm well, with the engine freeze, aside from the air-fuel ratio, what can they change to improve consumption? I suppose if FOTA agree to bring KERS back and it comes back bigger and better as was planned is one thing. Then you have the drivers slightly changing their styles which is another, but you (well, I) run out of ideas pretty fast! There's not much you can do on the Aero front.
Lift the engine freeze and bring back turbos and allow Super-KERS, I say. Who said going green had to be boring.
