Do F1 drivers lose kilos in a race?

Drivers lose kilos per race in sweat.

F1 drivers lose kilos per race as they are subject to sweltering temperatures, high-stress and thick fire-retardant clothing for up to 2 hours.

This means the driver is sweating profusely and only supplied 1.5 litres of fluids on board. Meaning a driver can lose up to 4 kg per race!

In very hot conditions, drivers will wear an ice vest, to help keep their core temperature down, before the race start.
