And yes Rob, Schumacher and Senna deserves a page on celebheights.
Johnny 181-182 cm said on 5/Sep/20
Bottas has claimed on his official website to be 173 cm. But I think he is 5ft 7 at most. As for Lewis I think he will be world champion again this season and equal Schumacher's record. Lewis is a phenomenal driver.
Mitsuko said on 15/Aug/20
I think Bottas might be shorter than 5'8, could be a weak 5'7. Hamilton looks taller than him most of the time.
Johnny 181-182 cm said on 10/Aug/20
@Rob how tall do you think Michael Schumacher was at his peak? He suffered a traumatic head injury and he doesn't make public appearances now. Can you give him a page? He is the most successful driver in F1 history.
Editor Rob
174 range
Pena said on 17/Jul/20
Well hamilton has to be at least 174cm if bottas is 173cm. He looks also around 6cm shorter than verstappen who is 180cm. But if hamilton is 172cm height. Then Bottas is 170-171cm and Verstappen 178-179cm.

Lewis is a strange one. His height has always been up and down compared to other drivers.

Check him out against Vettel during his McLaren days he was shorted by 2 inches and check him out now. There virtually no height difference.

How is he only 1 inch shorter than Zendaya in heels.
I think he is Tom Cruise's height of 172
Editor Rob
His sneakers Here might be a bit thicker, but I doubt from the look of it he has anything inside them, so can pull off near 5ft 8, he may well have been under-measured at 171, or it was 172 range in reality.
khaled taban said on 28/Dec/19
I always thought 5'8" was too generous for Hamilton , but not 5'7" flat either so 5'7.5" listing is spot on.
However , Rob has Tom Cruise at 172cm and Hamilton at 171.5 when both are the same height if not even Hamilton a bit taller !

and 3 days ago he was photographed with Valentino Rossi who supposedly is 5'10 or 5'11 and they were both the same height [picture wasn't showing their legs]

also, last week he attended a Tommy Hilfiger event, and he was the same height of Gigi Hadid [listed at 5'10] and another model, and they both were in heels ... very confusing !!!

Tunman said on 18/Feb/19
Rob,maybe 5'7 3/8" since we're now using 1/8".Anyways I always thought there was a good 3cm between him and Vettel,don't know why he thinks he shrank,after all Schumacher looked every bit of his 174cm until the end of his long career,not to say he was seriously injured in 1999.
Editor Rob
I think 5ft 7.5 is still fair, because he looks no less than that from what I've seen and it's always possible when somebody calls out a height, that they are a bit over (or I guess a little under too).

In Lewis case I'd have said a solid 171 range.
Christos said on 13/Feb/19
Hi Rob I can ask a question?How tall was Swedish f1 driver Ronnie Peterson?
Editor Rob
I am not so familiar with him, though from a brief look he could be just above average.
JamesB172cm said on 25/Nov/18
Rob my mom described him as a litttle squirt.... it’s a shame people have too judge a man on height especially since he’s in good shape and there are many cons about being tall that negatively effect your health.
Editor Rob
Well he is shorter than average. I don't think I'd call him a 'little squirt'. I'd call him a very successful and physically fit man, who has achieved global fame through his sport and other ventures and amassed more wealth than we could ever dream of.

Rob are these heights at night time or morning ??
Editor Rob
Think of by afternoon more than say morning.
Rising - 174 cm said on 16/Oct/18
@Andrea: His height isn't so surprising when he's in racing gear, but yeah, he definitely looks taller outside of that. You can see his chelsea boots have a heel at least 1.5" at the end of that video and an angle that certainly doesn't rule out an extra lift inside. Considering Lewis has gotten so into fashion and is doing some of these fashion shows now, it's not a stretch to imagine he'd want to stand taller than a solid 5'7".
Andrea said on 14/Oct/18
Although I haven't really looked much into it, I think he could really wear lifts, Rising. I remember when Rob first added him and listed him at 5'8, I always thought he wasn't over 5'7.5, so I certainly didn't bat an eyelid when that 171 cms video measurement was posted... BUT I remember seeing him on an Italian tv show about an year ago, and he surprisingly looked much taller than I thought he would have next to the presenter, which certainly made me raise an eyebrow. Here's the footage (where his footwear is more or less visible): Click Here
Rising - 174 cm said on 12/Oct/18
Since he didn't dispute the 171 measurement, we can assume it was accurate, but he can look at least his 174 claim so I really think he wears lifts. He could look close to 3" taller than 5'6" listed Ben Stiller: Click Here and here's the boots he wore to that event and a shot of his high-tops from the event with Andrew Scott a few years ago: Click Here Lewis also wore some really thick boots with a logger heel a few days ago: Click Here I don't know how tall Tommy Hilfiger is, but Lewis could look nearly 3" taller in those boots. I'd also guess Lewis wore high quality elevator shoes to the MIB3 premiere above: Click Here since Nicole looks like she has 4" platform heels, imo and she's supposed to be 5'5".

Keep in mind, he was no shorter than 5'7.75" listed Tom Cruise at the Jack Reacher premiere: Click Here and in all likelihood, Tom was wearing elevator boots himself: Click Here Click Here so I think Lewis took a page out of Robert Downey Jr's playbook and put lifts in his designer high-tops: Click Here Click Here Again, Nicole looks to me like she has roughly 3.5" heels or easily over 3". Lewis also visited Tom on a film set and looked to be the same height and what are the odds Tom wasn't wearing lifts either on set or at the premiere for an action film? Otherwise, Tom, Nicole and Ben Stiller are all much shorter than we thought.
Reinier said on 9/Oct/18
I think the listing is spot on! Compared to other drivers he looks a little taller than 5'7.
@Rob, could you add Dutch driver Max Verstappen? His website claims 1.80m and in a Dutch 2017 interview with Pauw he claimed 1.81m. I see him more as 1.79 though

The boots he often wears are often pretty substantial, and who knows if he has a small lift in them, even. Here he is recently looking as tall as Conor McGregor:

It's clear in his racing shoes how much smaller he is, though.
Kara said on 10/Feb/18
Hey Rob, I'd love to know if you agree with Nico Rosberg's claim of 178cm? Thanks!! Kara xoxo
Editor Rob
178cm seems a bit too high for Nico.
Darius said on 7/Jan/18
5'7.25 would be quite closer to the truth. I would say he is what he was measured, a 171cm guy especially after seeing photos of him with Tom Cruise. He listing above is quite unlikely as the chance of 171.5 being rounded down to 171 is not realistically possible. Although the lowest I would go would be 170.8cm i.e. 5'7.25".
The Shredder said on 2/Jan/18
Because he wears lifts ... the guy isn't going to look an easy 5'9 for nothing , even if he was as tall as 5'8.

The guy clearly wears lifts.
brandonknight said on 2/Jan/18
I'm confused. On his sneaker shopping episode, he looked near the host Joe's height. Yet 5'8" Eminem looked like a child next to Joe. Even with the hair, he didn't look this short.
The Shredder said on 19/Dec/17
Rob , he is taller than Andrew Scott , who you met ;) , he also can appear 5'9 range when he is at an event. He does look barely 5'8 next to other racers though. I Really think this guy wears lifts.
Editor Rob: Lewis seems a very fashion-aware man, and that may extend from his voluminous hairstyle all the way to his high-tops, which may well have a little Louis Vuitton lift in them.
He can seem close to Andrew's height.
2MeterPeter said on 17/Dec/17
Rob, do you think it's possible that before that 171 measurement he might have done some testing in his car earlier on, and the g forces could compress his spine slightly? Seems to me a weak 5'8.
Editor Rob: it's not impossible, he could have been at his lowest range.
josh said on 7/Dec/17
Levi, Conor Mcgregor is a legit 5ft 9, hamilton was wearing some thick ass boots at the fashion awards which made around the same height as Conor

RisingForce said on 3/Jul/17
It is hard to believe he'd be closer to 5'7" than 5'8" seeing him with Tom Cruise, but as Rob said, if he wasn't happy with the measurement, he probably wouldn't have agreed to it being in there. Just goes to show a solid 5'7" isn't as short as people think, much like James McAvoy.
Editor Rob: yeah, he probably didn't care much about the measurement and just went with it.

The fact the clip appeared in the program suggest lewis wasn't bothered about it...can't imagine someone like Tom Cruise ever doing that, you can't even ask him in an interview 'what height are you barefoot'.
Johnson said on 2/Jun/17

Johnson said on 3/Apr/17

Rob? Is there any particular reason why you don't include a page for Fernando Alonso?

meezemak said on 25/Mar/17
Alonso is 169 cm if u had check all the f1 site years ago.

Recently his height has been modified with 171cm.

Lewis has been mesured at 171 which means hé is at least 171cm which seems right comparing with Alonso.

Bottas isn't 173cm as he is always listed.

Vettel is 174cm from this pic U can see that Hamilton and Bottas are both shorter.
Click Here
regular_visitor said on 27/Feb/17
@Johnson So it seems, by 1-2 cm. But conclusions should be avoided on the basis of only one pic: On this instance there's a little lean-in by Bottas and we don't know their footwear. Id take the comparison of Massa and Bottas to be more fruitful, as there's plenty of pics available of them together from their time as teammates. It appears Bottas looks like 2-3 cm taller than Massa, who is listed 166 cm. That would make Bottas 168-169 cm, which I'm starting to believe. Bottas is known to have suffered a pretty serious back injury couple of years ago while racing. That might've cut off his height by 1-2 cm or even more, who knows.
Johnson said on 26/Feb/17
Bottas is shorter than 171 cm claimed Alonso

Johnson said on 25/Feb/17
@Rob do you know what time was it in the video of Hamilton measured at 171? Could it be evening time or late morning?
Editor Rob: Johnson, I'm not sure the time, but certainly they would have been up a while.
Johnson said on 25/Feb/17
@regular_visitor Gary Paffet told me he is 175 cm and knows he is quite taller than him. You can see he's visibly taller than Lewis. Yes Lewis could wear lifts or thick boots in the street. I think Alonso claims 171 cm. Hamilton looks 1.5 taller than him. In the morning he could pull off over 172.5 cm mark. Evening measured 171.4 possibly in a bad day
regular_visitor said on 24/Feb/17
Thanks for the follow up Rob. Hmmm... I have a hard time believing that was a measurement done properly with an actual (calibrated) stadiometer, although it vaguely looks like one. Revising at Hamilton & Bottas pics it seems Hamilton could be 2-4 cm taller pretty consistently. I think this is a pretty good illustration of the general setting, and think it's likely they are wearing identical footwear (racing shoes):
Click Here

On the other hand I doubt Bottas has his height so boasted everywhere, certainly not by himself being the down to earth modest kind of a guy he is as this would make him 167-169 cm tall. My guess is Hamilton is in 174-175 cm region and bottas in 171-172 cm region.

It's worth remembering that an F1 car can be brutal to your back. I consider myself 180 cm spot on. After a good night sleep I can measure 182.5 cm out of bed, and usually around midday I'm 180.5-181 cm. Right before bedtime I normally measure 180 cm spot on. If I take a bike ride or do a squat exercise in the gym I can go as low as 179.5 cm for the rest of the day, even if it’s still forenoon. I imagine being subjected to the G's in a F1 race car even for a relatively brief exercise stint could effectively compress your spine considerably for the remainder of the day, a full race length even days as I’ve experienced this carrying excessively heavy weights.
Editor Rob: he did laugh saying he's shrunk...

I'm sure if he wasn't happy with the clip he wouldn't have agreed to the measurement and mention of 171 being in it.

There is always, though, the chance of an incorrect installation onto the wall, but by 3cm I doubt.
Shredder said on 24/Feb/17
He does look taller , I say he wears lifts.
regular_visitor said on 23/Feb/17
On the norm I take Celebheights listings accurate, but I think this listing might be off. Valtteri Bottas seems to be listed everywhere 173 cm, but looking at pics of the new teammates together (Hamilton & Bottas), Hamilton seems to edge Bottas consistently by 1-2 centimeters, or even by a full inch. Hamilton is listed everywhere consistently 174-175 cm, which seems plausible.
Editor Rob: Click Here...

there is always a chance of error, but the women at least said 171cm.

Johnson said on 22/Feb/17
@Rob why don't you think that time he was measured 171 cm it could be 171.5 cm... and besides, being measured with error and in a bad day?? We can't trust 100% in that measurement. Anyway he is visibly shorter than Gary Paffet who told me he is 175 cm
Editor Rob: yeah there is always room for measurement error.

Lewis Hamilton is 172.5 cm tall
a wonderer said on 27/Oct/16
And Lo sgozzatore, sorry but this is ridiculous. You can't accurately estimate whether someone is 5'7.5 or 5'8, it doesn't work that way. Half an inch is way too less to correctly assess over some photos, especially since height varies a little and different camera angles and stances make a big difference. Your "internet arm chair height expert" routine will not change that.
a wonderer said on 27/Oct/16
I wonder if the G forces that you are suspected to during an entire F1 career can make you shrink permanently. Whadaya think?

@Peter Jones 5'5 (1.65 m) for Rooney... are you trolling?? So I guess you will say now Messi is 1.58...
Peter Jones said on 4/Oct/16
Lewis Hamilton's Louis Tussaud waxwork is roughly 5'5". I'm 5'10", and would have been 5'11" in my training shoes, and I was about 5 inches - or at least 4 inches - taller. I don't know how much the F1 boots add.

On the football comparisons: Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is also only 5'5". He's about the same as Wayne Rooney, who I also say is 5'5". I mentioned the waxworks and I know the modern footballers are made to their official height, not the real measurements - with the old players being made to their actual height. The Blackpool branch used to be a Louis T (the only one) but became a Madame T. They used to make the modern footballers the right height, but Madame T make them much taller (they'd be correct height if they had players well over 6ft. but they don't). The same players are much taller with the new owners.

I can't put a guess section, as I say he's probablya fraction shorter than the shortest option.

173.5 to 174 cm is probably his morning height right after waking up. Probably measured in the afternoon so that is why he was 2 cm shorter at around 171.5 cm (does not know that we on average loose 2 cm during the day lol.

While not the best angle, it's pretty clear that there isn't any scenario in which Hamilton would be taller than Bieber, right? It looks like even in flatter shoes he's only be as tall as Justin.
Editor Rob: his look a decent Adidas style, which won't really be any less than an inch and possibly a little more, Hamilton's style of race boot certainly isn't over half inch, and can be a little less in fact.

@ MD, It's since he split with Nicole I think. He looks ridiculous and an A-grade attention seeking poseur nowadays. Never thought Lewis was that type of guy.
MD said on 16/Jun/15
He is way overgrooming. The little pixie hairdo, the hats, the clothes, the sunglasses, the jewelry...it's all entirely too much. It'd be too much for an actual model, quite frankly, let alone a racecar driver. With all of this, then, I'd not be surprised, at all, to find that he's started wearing lifts if he already doesn't. That said, he doesn't seem incredibly height concious, so the outward appearance changes might just be the clothings and grooming.
Arch Stanton said on 12/Jun/15
What happened to this guy? I used to think he was pretty humble and a good guy but of late he's been looking a complete douchebag and thinks he's a rock star or something. 5'7.5 is spot on.

Talking about F1, I bet Schumacher has always been very honest about his own height. But, at the same time, I do believe he wouldn't NEVER say a single millimeter less than his real height.
So, I assume a full 174 for MS.
Vettel seems 1-2 cm shorter, to me. I guess 172-3 cm. (No way he is the 176 he claims!)
Nico Rosberg appears just slightly taller than MS in most pics. Not the 4 cm officially stated, though. I guess 175-6 for Rosberg.
Hamilton is about an inch shorter than Vettel, 170 cm would be fair. I think his 171 listing is a bit generous.
Alonso is a cm or two shorter than Hamilton. Take a look at some pics from 2007 season. He doesn't even reach 170, imho. 168-69 for Fernando.

How much height does Vettel have on Alonso in shots like this one?
Click Here

I'm also unsure on Schumacher, I'm thinking he could be actually over 174 as in most shots he seems to be a little bit taller than 174 (now 176) listed Vettel: Click Here (dunno about this particular one, he looks same as 5'10 listed Rosberg here, but in most shots there might be 1cm between Schumacher and Vettel)

Is this possible: Alonso 170-171, Vettel 173-174, Schumacher 174-175?
I guess since we have Hamilton for sure at 171 my assumption might be correct, since Schumacher does seem to have a solid inch on him: Click Here

Vettel and Hamilton looks more like 2cm to me, but could be also 3cm actually. Click Here
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 25/Aug/13
Hamilton is 170cm MAX. The 171cm measurement must have been in shoes. Jenson Button is 5'11"/180cm range. Vettel is slightly taller than Hamilton, I would peg him at 173-174cm. On a side note, I think Hamilton is an overrated driver, Vettel is way better.
Craig 177 said on 25/Aug/13
Cruise can't be above 171 cm either. There's no way he's taller than Hamilton.
5'8.5 guy said on 15/Jul/13
Rob, what's your opinion on Vettel? Do you buy the older 174 listings more than the recent 176 ones?
[Editor Rob: 174 might be nearer than 176, he can look at times 5ft 9, other times not so much]
Steven said on 14/Jul/13
Yes he is 1.71m and not 1.74m !!!!
miko said on 12/Jul/13
More like likely. Although 0.5' or so would be hard to pin down.
Craig 177 said on 12/Jul/13
miko: But what about all the other drivers who have been racing as long as him OR longer?

Have they all shrunk too??
miko said on 11/Jul/13
Craig, know what your talking about before you comment.

Hamilton has been racing for 15+ years and will have suffered severe back stress in that time, and it is more than possible it's shaved some height off him.
Craig 177 said on 10/Jul/13
miko: Lewis Hamilton is 28 years YOUNG. He is IN his 'prime'.

What next!? Cruise was 5' 11", 30 years ago...
Louis said on 9/Jul/13
for flying you need to be very healthy, so RAF needs accurate measurement, only question is was he measured in shoes or barefoot so he is between 169 and 171

cruise also need downgrade
miko said on 9/Jul/13
Its not out of the question that Hamilton has actually shrunken from his 'prime'.

He put a comment on his twitter about having an MRA scan as drivers spines suffer severe compression from all of the racing.

So he might just be a flat 5'7 today down from closer to 5'8 in his youth.
[Editor Rob: it's not impossible, jet pilots and drivers have huge forces on their backs, could lead to increased chance of disc damage.]
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 9/Jul/13
Rob, if he was measured 171cm, shouldn't you list him at 5'7.25" instead of 5'7.5"? 5'7.25" is closer to 171cm than 5'7.5" is.

Personally I think he's even shorter than 171, he looks 170 MAX next to Jenson Button. I wouldn't be surprised if the 171cm measurement was in shoes.
[Editor Rob: he could have been 171 on the nose or 171.5, impossible to know]
Craig 177 said on 9/Jul/13
Apologies for stating the obvious Rob, but 171 cm could also mean 5' 7.25"!

What do you think?
[Editor Rob: it depends, the measurement is never seen so all we have is a women saying 171, it could have been just under or even over the 171 mark, impossible to know, you could argue 5ft 7.25 or 7.5 or 6.75 or 8 based on different assumptions!]
Arch Stanton said on 7/Jul/13
I'm not going to say "I told you so" LOL but I said 5'7.5" all along. Spot on.
BB said on 5/Jul/13
Why is it such a big deal that he's not half an inch taller at 5'8? Why is it such an "I told you so" over half an inch? Is that THAT much of a difference?
Keltoi said on 4/Jul/13
Man... Cruise is at most 171cm then.

There's no way he's taller than Hamilton, no way. I'm well surprised that Lewis was measured that low to be honest, he looked a proper 173cm guy to me. But then again, he's less than 2cm off it, so it's not a massive difference to be fair. I just can't understand how someone could think they're an inch taller than they are, it's completely baffling to me.

I'm 172/3-ish at night and would never try to claim 175cm even though I probably scrape it in the morning.
Lo sgozzatore said on 3/Jul/13
Ahah, i knew you were going with 4.5 inches now. Dont misunderstand me, i agree. But you try to convince me he was only 4 inches shorter than Button just to support your listing. Now you obviously have changed idea! Better late than never...
[Editor Rob: generally he can look 4 inches taller, of course sometimes he looks 4.5 and even at times a bit less than 4, depending on photos/posture.]
Lo sgozzatore said on 3/Jul/13
I neither said he was just 5'7, but for sure not the 5'8! You said he generally looks just 4 inches shorter than Jensen Button, so now you think Button is 5'11.5? Or it was just to justify your listing? I think Button might be 5'11.75 by the way
[Editor Rob: he can look 4 and 4.5 inches when he's button's eyelevel.]
Lo sgozzatore said on 2/Jul/13
Rob, what did i tell you? No way is this guy is 5'8 :)
[Editor Rob: I said I didn't think he looked as low as 5ft 7 flat, but a bit under 5ft 8 wasn't improbable.]
Dumb Blonde said on 1/Jul/13
I worked at Mercedes Benz World and he was there all the time. He's 171cm.
kramer said on 30/Jun/13
Just seen him measured on bbc1 at 171cm. Arguments over!
Al89 said on 30/Jun/13
171cm according to the RAF - just been measured in a BBC feature in which he flies with the Red Arrows in advance of the Grand Prix today. His reply "Damn, I've shrunk."
Keltoi said on 4/Mar/13
Looks like a legit 5'8" guy to me.

He's about a half inch taller than Cruise, who appears to have a slight footwear advantage as well, which makes me think Cruise could be closer to 5'7". Now, if Cruise has anything in those shoes, then there's no chance he's anywhere near 5'8".
Arch Stanton said on 22/Feb/13

Got to say he does seem as if he edges out Cruise slightly, he might be 5'8" then.
Arch Stanton said on 22/Feb/13

2 inches????

They look similar range.
Gmc said on 18/Feb/13
What i dont get is everyone is saying lewis is a week 5.8. And saying tom cruise is similar.yet theres 2 inches between them lol
Arch Stanton said on 3/Feb/13
He could be 3 ft 6 and still count himself lucky, the guy can afford his own private jet and has one of the hottest women in the world as a girlfriend. A guy younger and much smaller than me who is buying his own private jet, you have to give it to the guy!
JK said on 25/Jan/13
I think that he is a little over 5'7 (171 cm)
Lo sgozzatore said on 25/Jan/13
5'6 is too low for sure, he looks taller. But 5'8 is too much at the same time. He's 171-172 as everybody is saying...
mat said on 24/Jan/13
he is definitely not 5'8''. Schumacher has an inch over Vettel, who has an inch or more over hamilton. 5'6'' at most
SAK said on 20/Jan/13
Needs downgrade to 171-172cm. He looks like a short person. Saying that 5f8/173 is short.
James said on 9/Jan/13
I have a friend who is 6'1 range and works at farnborough airport. When lewis flew into farnborough he shook hands with lewis

My friend kept going on about how short lewis hamilton was in person.
Godred said on 4/Jan/13
Yep I could buy the 5`7.5 people are plumping for.
Arch Stanton said on 4/Jan/13
Lo sgozzatore and most others here I think are spot on with 5'7.5". He was calling his height in sneakers at 1.74m I believe.
173 said on 30/Dec/12
IMO, 5'7" flat is too low for him. But 5'7.5" is probably on the money! 172cm is the MAX! And 5'8" is just generous! I'm not downgrading, I just call it like I see it!
Lo sgozzatore said on 28/Dec/12
Shredder, i agree with you most of the times but this time i can't, no offence :)
I just say what i see. He does look under 5'8 with everyone! I dont care him being tall or short... But he just doesnt look 5'8. Yeah, maybe 5'7 is too low, but for sure 5'8 is too high. 5'7.5, that's surely closer. We all told Rob is shorter than 5'8, he doesnt change him, thats his business. Even if he keeps him at 5'8, that doesnt mean he is 5'8. Real height dont change if Rob change them, if you know what i mean.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 27/Dec/12
I agree with Lo sgozzatore and everyone else who thinks Hamilton needs a downgrade. I think a 5'7" listing would be fair.
Lo sgozzatore said on 27/Dec/12
In fact, i'd give him 5'7.5, givin the benefit of doubt! If 5'7 is too low, 5'8 is for much more "too high"! I repeat, there's more difference between Hamilton and Button than between Rob and the 184 challenger... And, as Killer Shrimp says, Button gets lots of 182 listings... Cruise looks at least half an inch shorter than him, with shoe advantage! This really makes him 5'7 at best...
Lo sgozzatore said on 27/Dec/12
Agree with killer-shrimp! At best, i can see 5'7.5, 5'7 not impossible, even if there's more probability he's 5'7 than 5'8 for sure! 5'8 is there just to support Cruise's listing... I do remember that even Rob said he generally looks 5'7, maybe 5'7.5 which is what i exactly think! But now that photos of him with little tom came out, he cant be just 5'7!
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 26/Dec/12
5'8" for Hamilton is pure upgrading. Just look at this guy next to Button who probably isn't a full 6'0" himself since he is listed at 182cm all over the Internet. There's more than 4 inches between them.
Lo sgozzatore said on 22/Dec/12
Yeah, he did look an inch taller than Tom Cruise and he looks max 5'7.5 next to all the F1-drivers... Do your math! (Considering Cruise probably had shoe advantage, as always)
Arch Stanton said on 22/Dec/12
I think it is quite clear he was being honest about 1.74 but was measured in sneakers. Don't know too many shoes which only give a cm though! Barefoot he has to be somewhere around 5'7.5" I think.
Lars said on 21/Dec/12
Good to see another F1-driver on Celebheights! It wouldn't suprise me if Lewis is closer 171-172 though, and I have a weak memory that Rob even said that he could be in that range long time ago. I could be wrong though. Anyway I can buy 172-173 cm.
Rampage(-_-_-)Clover said on 20/Dec/12
Shouldn't 5ft8.5 be is listed height if he claims 174cm, Rob?
[Editor Rob: it is quite possible he measured 174cm in footwear, be it racing shoes or something else]
miko said on 20/Dec/12
Speaking of Tom Cruise, Hamilton looked about 1 inch taller than him in some recent photos of them together.
SAK said on 20/Dec/12
Definate need of a downgrade. I initially stated he should be listed as 172cm, but that is being too generous. 171cm is closer to the truth. Maybe even 170cm.
Lo sgozzatore said on 20/Dec/12
I bet that even if he was measured at 171, Rob would keep him at 5'8! Why? Because he needs this listing to support his Cruise's listing... Clearly under 5'8!
Dean 5ft 9.25 said on 19/Dec/12
How tall is Jenson Button? Hes at LEAST 12cm shorter than Button. so if Button is 6ft hes 171cm MAX.
He probably measures about 173.5cm in shoes and thats why claims 174cm.
Arch Stanton said on 19/Dec/12
171-172cm.
Mr-KILLER-SHRIMP said on 18/Dec/12
Hamilton is 5 inches shorter than Button, he isn't over 170cm.
SAK said on 18/Dec/12
I see 172cm after seeing pics MD posted.

Legit 5'8.5" Michael Schumacher has a good solid inch on Lewis Hamilton...

Arch Stanton says on 17/Dec/12
Lewis is taller than G but I really don't think he's quite 5'8".
--------------------------------------------
I know, it was just a joke. Lewis looks 5'7.5" to me (not lower than that). And G is 5'6.5", 5'7" was G's peak.

the shredder says on 16/Dec/12
5'8 is possible , you guys are INSANE . 5'7.5 is closer though .
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Most of us ARE saying 5'7.5", not lower than that. Did you notice you're the only one here saying he's 5'8"? (aside from Rob)
miko said on 17/Dec/12
Jenson standing full straight here, thats a big 3.75 inches.

Lo sgozzatore said on 17/Dec/12
There's more difference between Button and Hamilton than between Rob and the 184 challenger...
Arch Stanton said on 17/Dec/12
Lewis is taller than G but I really don't think he's quite 5'8". Schumacher is a legit 1.74m guy, and was the exact same height as a liftless Stallone.
Lo sgozzatore said on 17/Dec/12
He must look only 4 inches taller or your little Cruise cant be around your listing :)
Lo sgozzatore said on 17/Dec/12
Rob, thats what im saying! He doesnt looks shorter than Cruise, he looks taller and considering Cruise has probably lifts that would make him even shorter than 5'7! If you want to keep him at 5'8, then upgrade Button to 6'1
[Editor Rob: I think in general button looks around 4 inches taller.]

He's more than 10cm shorter than Jenson Button who I don't buy at 6'0"/183cm.
SAK said on 16/Dec/12
I usually dont downgrade most celebs on here, but I really feel Hamilton should be lowered to 5f7.5.
173 said on 16/Dec/12
He's does not look 5'8", his 1.74m claim was probably what he measured in shoes or in the morning. I'd even bet money Tom Cruise would be taller than this guy or the same height at best. If he's 5'8", I guess Michael Shumacher is 5'9"?...
Lo sgozzatore said on 16/Dec/12
I get it now, you have to leave him at 5'8 to make your Cruise's listing reasonable since he looks shorter than him by more than 0.5 inches!
[Editor Rob: hamilton doesn't look shorter than cruise from what I've seen]
Lo sgozzatore said on 16/Dec/12
Aahahah If Glenn is not 5'8, then Lewis is not 5'8 too! No way this guy is 5'8!
Lo sgozzatore said on 16/Dec/12
Rob, isnt that enough? He looks shorter than 5'8 with every guy
Arch Stanton said on 16/Dec/12
Yeah Vettel does look a legit 5'9" in that photo which is odd as he appears shorter than 5'8.5" Schumacher in most photos. He must slouch an awful lot. I completely agree that Lewis appears more a 5'7" range guy, 172cm at most.
Lo sgozzatore said on 16/Dec/12
Here you go, Arch: Click Here
They look a 5'7, a 5'9 and a 6' guy to me! Vettel is near 176...
Hamilton isnt 5'8, just give him 5'7.5 (if you dont want to put him at 5'7). Maybe he's near 5'8 in the morning but for sure is not 5'8!
Lo sgozzatore said on 16/Dec/12
Yeah, 1.74 must be height in shoes, Rob would surely be taller than this guy
Arch Stanton said on 16/Dec/12

Michael Schumacher is a legit 5'8.5". Lewis looks as if he edges Vettel out, neither of them look over 5 ft 8, Vettel generally look an inc shorter than Michael, he might be 5'7.5" then if Lewis is actually 5 ft 8. I wouldn't put money on him being taller than Cruise though! Cruise must have been wearing his "footwear".

Looks practically the same height as alonso whos listed at 1.71. maybe 172, but no more.

5'7.5 guy at best.
Lo sgozzatore said on 15/Dec/12
Rob, have you seen him next to Schumacher or Button? He really doesnt look 5'8! 5'7.5 maybe is better...
