Best Answer

The minimum weight allowed by the rules is 600kg including driver. So at the end of a race when the fuel is low, the tyres are worn, the brake pads and discs have worn down and the driver has lost weight through loss of fluids, the overall package must still weigh at least 600kgs. The teams work out their weights to such a fine degree that once a race is over the drivers deliberately drive off the racing line to to pick up bits of tyre rubber called marbles that have worn off their tyres during the race. The marbles stick to their hot tyres thereby making them heavier because every little bit of weight counts.

The F1 cars is made up from composites of carbon fibre and similar ultra-lightweight materials. The minimum weight permissible is 620 kg (1,367 lb) including the driver, fluids and on-board cameras.
