DC, Mark Webber and the tall Welsh lad were interviewing Esteban Ocon,a driver, on Sunday and the matter of height height came up - as in physically fitting into the car. Ocom said he was 186cm and Mark Webber mentioned that he, MW, was 184. So DC certainly in the 182/183 range.

It's probably tough to judge their heights because it's not often you see tall people congregated together on telly.

@ Sandy Cowell - There are plenty of people who are guilty of half-inching an extra half-inch of height, many try to get away with half-inching as many half-inches as possible! So many people stick with their heighest ever measurement because it sounds better, they take great pride in doing this and they want to be ignorant about any other measurement! Why can't more people make themselves out to be smaller? I like the term half-inching to denote pinching, Cockney rhyming slang is a fun way of using our language!

It's good that David recognises that he is and was of a tall height, I see an honest, down to earth, and well grounded individual, who has worked hard for what he has achieved in life!

@ Nik - I can go for that! 5ft11.5 is very nearly 6ft and we find so many fellas don't think anyone will notice if they sneak on an extra half-inch, or half-inch an extra centimetre or two! It's hardly the crime of crimes and who knows, it could often be the culprit's morning height!

I used to truly be of the opinion that a person's height was the maximum he or she had ever been measured at, and I, too, am guilty of half-inching* half-an-inch! I put 5ft3 in my passport as it sounded nicer, so I am as red-faced as anyone!!!!!

But I was only 17 and thought I'd make it sooner or later! I didn't, other than on tiptoe!

Now I've been shrinking like a snowman, but I might yet find I have 're-gained' a bit, after my hip op! β˜ƒοΈπŸ“πŸ˜œβ“

* The term 'half-inch' is Cockney rhyming slang for PINCH, in case any of you aren't quite in the know! πŸ˜‰

@ Sandy Cowell - At least he didn't claim 6'0", or even 6'1", so his claim is pretty honest!

The girl next to him is very tall, a lot of tall male celebrities do tend to be pictured with tall girls! I know the lady next to David is his wife and she is almost as tall as David is! They are both sound people and this picture is a nice one!

Also David has done well to keep his weight off as this is a very difficult thing to achieve, he gets 5'11.5"!

Looks about right. He was always one of the taller drivers and is a bit under Mark Webber on the C4 coverage. Webber is quoted as anything between 182cm and 185cm but was always referred to as 6 feet during his career. 182cm for DC and 183cm for Webber would be accurate. Both well under Steve Jones, no matter what the slope or camera angle.

I've seen Coulthard in person and guessed him as being 182cm, certainly somewhere between 5ft11-6ft so I think 5ft11.5 has to be close.

@ Rob - So am I in no doubt that the lady's personality is sound! πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘

Yh I've met him and thought he was somewhere in 5ft11-6ft range, my guess was 182 actually so 5ft11.5 seems close enough.

Not sure I'd call almost 6ft tall

It's his wife Karen Minier.I think she was listed at 181 somewhere but although tall she seems a little under that.
Maybe the best picClick Here heel doesn't seem over 2".She seems like 5'10.5"

😝 Correction Time! 😝

That should have been 'the girl next TO him!'

LπŸ‘€K at the size (as in height!) of the girl next you him! These racing drivers do prove attractive to model girl types, don't they?

David can have 5ft11.5 and a thumbs-up emoji for being a sensible boy, keeping a life-long eye on his weight, so that he can race more efficiently! πŸ‘

I'm sure she has a lovely personality too. Coulthard has always seemed a reasonably sound guy, I would be surprised if he wasn't close to 11.5.
