today i learned – sun 8th apr 2018

due to being distracted by f1, i’m writing this one quite late 😅

for that reason, i’m not sure it’s going to be a long one … but it will be about formula one 🏎 so it’s swings and roundabouts! 🤷🏻‍♂️

#tdil formula one drivers lose weight whilst they’re racing 😏

they actually lose a fair amount of weight – around 4kg during each two or so hour race 🏎

the reason for this weight loss? well, during each race, the drivers endure hot temperatures in the car and wild g forces as they power through the corners 😎

due to the mad physical exertion involved with racing (no, they don’t just sit on their bottoms doing not much!) they also sweat a lot.

now, most drivers do carry water on board for drinking, so they can replenish a lot of the weight lost through sweating during the race …

however, sometimes drivers do without water to save adding any weight to the car (every little helps 🤷🏻‍♂️) … in that case, drivers can lose even more weight during a race! 🙈

that’s literally it for today 😂 told you it would be a fairly quick one … to be honest, a lot of you probably already knew about it 😅

oh well, hopefully you enjoyed! on a side note, how good was today’s race?! 😱

peace 🙌🏻 #tdil
