Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa were the two most vocal opponents when the GPDA discussed the matter of raising the 2014 car weight limit today.
The subject of driver weight has been a topic of major debate recently, with taller drivers worried that they will be at even more of a disadvantage than in the past.
Intriguingly one of those keen for the change to go through was Sebastian Vettel, who freely admitted that he has had an advantage over Mark Webber for the past few seasons.
In the end the drivers don’t have any formal say in any attempt to change the rules as they are not part of any process.
The FIA has been looking into a 10kgs change, but one senior team boss told this blog that Mercedes has blocked the plan.
