Yuki Tsunoda height and weight

Yuki Tsunoda enters Formula 1 this year as one of its smallest-ever drivers. Unsurprisingly, he has become the target of many jokes because of this - but how tall exactly is the Alpha Tauri man?

F1 rookie Yuki Tsunoda is primarily known for two things: driving very fast, and being rather on the short side. In fact, many fans, as well as the man himself, have made jokes at the driver's expense regarding his stature.

When the official F1 Twitter account asked fans the question "in 2021 Yuki Tsunoda will____", the man himself responded by tweeting, "Grow".

It's no secret that Tsunoda is one of the shortest drivers to ever race in the championship, but he also very light. This can come with many advantages and disadvantages, as we will go on to discuss, but the weight is particularly interesting when put in some context.

For 2019, rules were introduced that roughly stated that the maximum weight a driver should be is 80kg. The most important thing is for both car and driver collectively to weigh under a certain amount, but it is still notable how much lighter Yuki is than the maximum legal limit.


Tsunoda first entered Formula 1 for the 2021 season, having impressed in F2 the year prior. His skills certainly aren't in question, but for those who are still wondering how tall he actually is, all the answers you need are provided below.

What is Yuki Tsunoda's length?

Yuki Tsunoda is 1.59m (5ft 3 in) and he weighs 61 kilograms.

This makes him the shortest F1 driver on the grid, and by some margin. The next shortest is McLaren's Lando Norris, who comes in at 1.70m, swiftly followed by veteran Fernando Alonso, who is one centimeter taller than Norris.

Why could Yuki's height be a problem?

You may think that there is a benefit to being small in F1, and in some cases that is certainly true. In days gone by, you'd want the driver to be a light as possible in order to make the car quicker, but in the modern age, rules have been introduced to make sure that taller (and therefore heavier) drivers are punished.

This essentially means that the FIA now weights the car and driver together, so any weight advantage a driver has is made up for with a heavier car.

The same can be said of aerodynamics, as 2021 F1 cars are built with taller drivers in mind.

"First, I have to put a lot of foam inside the monocoque to make my seat position higher to see the view clearly," Tsunoda told.

"And also, we made a quite special pedal case [for me] to reach the pedals."

"I have worked hard on my physical preparation, training every day and focusing on those areas where I saw I needed to be stronger," The Alpha Tauri driver added.

Henceforth, any advantages that come from the lack of weight are essentially wiped away by the obvious inconveniences of being too short to drive the car.
