177-178 for him?
Editor Rob
Wouldn't have guessed him much over 5ft 9

Why does Lewis Hamilton look the same height as Vettel these days? Is he wearing some kind of lifts in his race boots? Surely he can’t have grow a few inches in recent years.

rob, rosberg appears only slightly taller than vettel so would it be fair to say he is 5ft 9in?

Rosberg is listed at 5'10, but he is absolutely overestimated.
Nico is 5'9 at the very best.

He could be 5ft 9 on the nose

@gabenewton I honestly don't know how you can observe half an inch
John Davis said on 21/Aug/17
I'd never thought he was this height, I'd say at least 5ft 10
gabenewton said on 3/Jun/17
5'8.5 seems right, he looks like a legit 5'9 sometimes maybe because he's skinny and it make him looks taller

Looks like 5ft 8.75

I don't buy that. The photo is tilted so it boosts Vettel and you can't see their legs&shoes. Also like I said, in my opinion Raikkonen never forces extreme posture. Ofc, I might be mistaken.

@F1 fanboy

Vettel is taller than Raikkonen. Proof:

Listing seems accurate to me. In my opinion his teammate Raikkonen is just a fraction taller. Raikkonen is usually with much looser posture eventhough Vettel might edge him in some photos.

I realized Schumacher is 175. 174 listings can be when he was 17 years old. You should look pictures with footballers: Podolski, Reus, Messi, etc

You're British with a name like Matthieus LOL. Not all Germans are over 6'3" Matthieus but yeah a 5'8" guy would be considered short in Germany and the Scandinavian countries, where as in the UK and US it's more borderline short and lower end of average range.
Matthieus said on 27/Dec/13
Seems on the short side for a German guy. Not to stereotype but I associate a lot of German guys with mostly being tall, or generally taller than us Brits.
I could see the advantages of being a shorter/average sized racing driver as opposed to tall.

I never miss a F1 race,so i see these guys frequevently and there is always 3 cm between Vettel and Hamilton,
174 for Vettel and 171 for Hamilton is very accurate

Rob, thanks for adding Vettel. I think he definitely deserves a page, he is currently by far the best F1 driver. I think this listing is about right.

Rob, Lewis Hamilton had 174cm on his site and you've given him weak 5ft8.
What makes you so sure that this guy is 5ft8.5?
[Editor Rob: Lewis ended up getting a measurement and I think if you look at Vettell with hamilton, he looks a lot nearer his 174 claim than lewis ever did.]

@KJK: He actually looks more 5ft 9-9.25 in those shots, plus Hamilton is nearer to the camera... 6ft 0.5 listed Webber looks to have 3.25-3.5in on Vettel too.

Granted, Vettel has significantly more hairstyle than Hamilton but the difference still looks more than an inch in these shots
MD said on 6/Dec/13
Thanks for those pictures, KJK. Those are definitely better photos we had to judge off of than before.
KJK said on 5/Dec/13
Vettel is around 3 cm taller than Hamilton who has been measured at 171 cm. Check out the links below:

Vettel is about the same height as Kimi Raikkonen, and he is around 173 cm.
Vibram said on 4/Dec/13
I think the 5ft8.5 (174cm) Schumacher as 1/2 inch over Vetell. That would make Vettel 5ft8 flat (173cm), maybe 172,5cm. Click Here

Both are in racing shoes in that pic, which are basically a wafer thin rubber sole. So no footwear advantage/disadvantage for either man.
MD said on 4/Dec/13

In that photo, he actually looks shorter than Hamilton, too. Look at the shoulders. They are pretty close
Arch Stanton said on 2/Dec/13
Spot on I reckon.
miko said on 2/Dec/13
In most pictures I've seen he's similar to Hamilton and clearly shorter than Schumacher...

He could be 173...
KJK said on 1/Dec/13
174 cm is a good listing for Vettel. He is not shorter than that because he is clearly taller than both Hamilton and Alonso.
5ft 8.5 guy said on 1/Dec/13
Ah, with "as well" I meant Schumacher who you have listed 5ft 8.5 here as well, the page hasn't been updated since 2006 though.
5ft 8.5 guy said on 1/Dec/13
About time :)

in most shots Schumacher looks a bit taller than him as I said on the Hamilton page, is your guess still 5ft 8.5 as well for him?

Also, Vettel is listed 176 nowadays, but when you compare him to 171 measured Hamilton I guess 174 is fair enough for him...
[Editor Rob: I'm going with what he was on his site, I don't buy the 176 mark, 174 seems closer]
