2020’s Tallest F1 Team Is…

Which team has the tallest driver line-up in 2020? Who is the tallest driver, who is the shortest, and what is the combined height of this year’s grid? We have all the answers!


If the drivers on the 2020 grid all stood on each other’s heads in an impressive acrobatic circus act, their total height would be 35.76 metres. That’s double the size of Abraham Lincoln’s face on Mount Rushmore. The 2020 grid is 3cm taller than the 2019 grid and 11cm taller than the 2018 grid.

You’d need 23 clones of each driver to make a tower as tall as Dubai’s Burj Khalifa

This year, gangly Frenchman Esteban Ocon (186cm) and similarly gangly Canadian Nicholas Latifi (185cm) have replaced Nico Hulkenberg  and Robert Kubica (both 184cm). The combined height of 2020’s Formula 1 drivers is:

  • about seven-tenths as tall as Nelson’s Column
  • about two-thirds as tall as The Leaning Tower of Pisa
  • about half as long as the wingspan of a Boeing 747
  • about two-and-a-half times as tall as The Hollywood Sign

You would require 23 clones of each Formula 1 driver all stood on top of each other to make a tower as tall as the Burj Khalifa in Dubai. 2019’s tallest driver Alex Albon has been joined by Esteban Ocon as the tallest driver on the grid this year, both standing at a height of 186cm. It’s Williams who have the tallest team on the grid for the third consecutive season. This year, their drivers George Russell and Nicholas Latifi total a height of 370cm

For a second year in a row, Mercedes and McLaren are tied as the teams with the shortest driver line-ups, with Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas being the same combined height as Carlos Sainz and Lando Norris at 347cm. Sainz and Norris measure 1cm less combined than the 2018 McLaren line-up. Sainz is the same height as Stoffel Vandoorne, while Norris is a single centimetre shorter than Fernando Alonso. Norris is the shortest driver on the grid.

Hans-Joachim Stuck is believed to be the tallest ever F1 driver at 194cm, while Andrea Montermini is thought to be the shortest of the modern era at just 5 foot, 2 inches (around 157cm). See the height of each 2020 team and driver below:
