Apr.4 (GMM) Adrian Sutil will go the entire Bahrain grand prix on Sunday without a sip of water.
The tall and therefore heavy German lost almost 4 kilograms over the winter and is now complaining that, given the heavier 2014 engines, the 692kg car-plus-driver minimum weight is unfair.Sutil claims he is barely training in order to further shrink his muscles, and eating and drinking so little that - tapping his head - "you don't work well up here".Not only that, Sauber's car and Ferrari engine are both overweight, so the Swiss team is cutting corners in every area -- including taking away Sutil's half-kilo drinks bottle.But Ferrari's super-fit cycling enthusiast Fernando Alonso has revealed that, even in stifling Malaysia, he raced comfortably without a drink."In the past, Malaysia required a specific training programme," he said in Bahrain."But this year I told the team I didn't even need a drinks system. The cars are much less physically demanding."
