Carlos Sainz is a happy eater again and the Spanish Formula One driver's mother is delighted.Heavier, faster and more physical, the 2017 cars are subjecting drivers like the Toro Rosso youngster to far greater G-forces through corners that can now be taken flat out on fatter tires.A year ago, Sainz and other drivers such as Red Bull's Australian Daniel Ricciardo were being pushed to shed kilos to gain performance.F1 cars have a minimum weight limit, minus fuel but with driver included, and designers aim to get it down as far as possible so that additional ballast can be distributed around the car to improve handling.
