Yuki Tsunoda

F1 rookie Tsunoda jokes about his height

Find out how the new AlphaTauri driver and Formula 1 rookie sparked social media with just one word, hours after the team's car launch.

Yuki Tsunoda will become one of the shortest Formula 1 drivers the sport has seen in its 71-year history when he makes his Grand Prix debut in Bahrain next month.

The best placed F2 rookie from last year is just 1.59 metres tall and 55 kg in weight. McLaren's Lando Norris was the shortest F1 driver on the grid in 2019 and 2020 but Tsunoda is set to take that status for the foreseeable future.

It's something he decided to joke about on the day AlphaTauri launched their 2021 challenger.
