As per the FIA regulations, every F1 car must have a certain minimum/maximum weight and this weight is inclusive of the drivers weight. In case of drivers who are tall and well built, the teams may have to adjust the cars features to make sure that the net weight of the car does not exceed the prescribed limits. Hence it is very important to weigh the F1 drivers.

I am only a Professional Karting and single seater driver, not a formula 1 driver, and I have seem to memorized all the F1 tracks, using simulators only. They do about 14 hours per weekend on a track. I do about 30 minutes on the PS3, and i can do it with my eyes closed. Those F1 drivers are special people also. So they can practically drive the car and shift with their eyes closed.
Usually F1 drivers starts very young, at the age of 9yrs old they start kart-racing. Some F1 racers didn't start young. If you know any nearby autodrome, start racing there, it might cost a lot of money, involve yourself in competitions after a lot of pratice...You might get the chance to get to F2, or GP2, that's the way to F1 Otherwise there are F1 schools in most countries around the world.
