LAT PHOTOGRAPHIC – Fitting within of the autos has become an exciting component of the 2014 Formula A single season.
Nico Hülkenberg has denied becoming 1 of the Formula One drivers obsessed with severe weight reduction.
Amid rumors of deliberate dehydration, when it emerged that a driver had passed out final week in Malaysia, eyes turned to racers like Hülkenberg who standing at over 6 feet is one particular of the quite tallest on the grid.
But the German has exposed he truly ate McDonald’;s in Kuala Lumpur.
“This was the exception rather than the rule,” Hülkenberg told Germany’;s Sky. “But this was an emergency — I was genuinely hungry and needed to have something.
“There’;s a McDonald’;s on practically every single corner,” he stated, grinning.
Hülkenberg stated he is not obsessed with his excess weight in 2014 since, as a tall driver, he has worked difficult all through his job to be as light as possible.
“I think some of the other guys had some more excess weight in reserve that they had to drop now, but for me, I am more or significantly less what I was at the finish of final 12 months. I could not get rid of any much more,” stated the Force India driver.
A single of the drivers who has misplaced bodyweight is Mercedes’; Nico Rosberg, in spite of the reality he is at least 6 centimeters shorter than Hülkenberg.
“I had to make the sacrifice if I want to balance the automobile perfectly,” he explained.
“The diet program alone is simple, but education with little food is hell,” Rosberg informed Germany’;s Bild am Sonntag.
“I have eaten no sugar given that early December — for my dream I am residing like a monk,” he smiled.
