Lewis Hamilton Height

In racing, there are always things you can learn, every single day. There is always space for improvement, and I think that applies to everything in life.

Great racing driver, Lewis Hamilton is known for having won a joint-record seven World Drivers' Championship titles (tied with Michael Schumacher), for holding the records for the most wins, pole positions, and podium finishes, amongst others, and also for being one of the richest drivers in Formula One of course.

About Lewis' Hamilton Height

People want to know how tall Lewis Hamilton is for some reason -- but why? You don't need to be tall to drive a car -- in fact, you don't even need hands to drive a car anymore and perhaps in a few years you won't even need legs.

Well enough with the lark, back to the topic.

As it happens, Lewis Hamilton, like many top F1 drivers are "short". Formula one news website RacingNews365 lists Lewis Hamilton's height as 1.74m or 5 feet 7 inches. Someone should tell those ditzy people that 1.74m converts to 5'8" instead of 5'7".

Though, Lewis was measured at 171 cm in 2013 (for a red arrows featurette). To which he promptly replied, "Damn, I've shrunk!".

Height loss happens with age, though we doubt that Lewis has lost some height at 35 years. The most obvious case scenario is that his previous measure was probably done incorrectly or with shoes still on.

After carefully taking a look at him and seeing him standing next to some other people like Jaden Smith (5'7"), Justin Bieber (5'7½"), Tom Cruise (5'7¾"), etc, we think Lewis' real height is undoubtedly between 5'7" to 5'8".

By the way, Lewis' normal weight is 73 kg (161 lb).

The height of Lewis Hamilton is

5 ft 7½ in (171.5 cm)
