Oh I'm sorry, I bow down to your supreme intelligence. Stupid little me will just leave now.

Look at the crouched position of the front two tyre guys.
I do a lot of gym work, and if you asked me to do that by myself from that position with a heavier f1 wheel i would tell you where to go, you would damage your back for a lifetime.
The pace and requirements dictate numbers, safety dictates speed limits.
I actually lifted an F1 wheel at Silverstone, it weighs next to nothing, about 8 kilos I think the engineer said, you could easily lift it one handed.
