You literally have no clue what you are talking about, i can't think of one fat current nascar driver. those guys are in the gym doing cardio training 4 days a week all day, the other 3 they they spend at the race track in a 130-140 degree car breathing in carbon monoxide fumes, they spend roughly 7 hours in those cars for a single race weekend, and you can double or even tripple that number if they are running in the grand national and truck series. Those drivers can lose over 30lbs of water weight in a single race. They are peak conditioned and several them compete in triathlons regularly during their off time.
An F1 car is much simpler to drive fast than a stock car, because of how well an F1 car handles. they are 2000lbs lighter, they have better tires, no clutch, better suspension, and more technology aiding in the drivers ability to drive them fast. People who have actually driven both routinely have said the f1 cars is easier to drive once you get used to the speed. Where as with the stock car you have to be a lot more ginger in your throttle and brake inputs, because you are in a car that has a lot more torque than a f1 car and weighs a lot more.
