2022 Formula 1 drivers standing on the grid.

Here are all the 2022 Formula 1 driver’s heights and weights at the beginning of the new season.

In Formula 1, even small details such as a driver’s height and weight can be of utmost importance as it dictates how much ballast their car needs, as well as how affecting how that ballast can be positioned.

In general, the shorter and smaller a driver is, the better it is for the car designers to ensure an optimal package.

Unsurprisingly, the driver’s weights are also maintained to a huge degree throughout the season, as necessitated by the sport’s minimum weight requirements for a suited and booted driver sitting in his car.
