Renault driver Niko Hulkenberg has the kind of name that sounds like big could be his thing.In Formula One seasons past, muscle bulk hasn't really been the key requirement for drivers, with work on endurance being the focus of training in the gym. The new regulations in F1 have made the cars bigger and faster, prefacing an era that has the drivers and fans more excited than usual, and so the pilots have to follow suit.Lewis Hamilton has worked out the game, winning three drivers' titles, so he's more than ready to up the ante.Hamilton, who won back-to-back titles with Mercedes in 2014 and '15 and narrowly missed out to teammate Nico Rosberg last season, considers himself as much an athlete as a driver.The F1 rule changes means wider tires, greater aerodynamics, bigger fuel loads and increased down-force, which have made the cars heavier but also significantly faster.Four-time world champion Sebastian Vettel expects his '17-edition Ferrari to be the fastest car he's driven.
