Yuki Tsunoda: Age, Height, Net Worth, Salary, Girlfriend and More

Yuki Tsunoda - Alpha Tauri driver

Yuki Tsunoda is a Japanese F1 driver who currently competes for AlphaTauri.

Tsunoda is the first driver to compete in Formula 1 to have been born in the 2000s and joined the sport for the first time in 2021 after quickly progressing up the motorsport ranks.

He won the Japanese F4 championship in 2018 before moving to F3 in Europe for 2019 as a member of both the Red Bull and Honda young driver academies.

His career moved on quickly, too, with him entering F2 in 2020 and winning the ‘Rookie of the Year’ award in the chief feeder series for F1.

Indeed, his performances that took him to third in the championship were enough to convince AlphaTauri to give him a shot in F1 for 2021, with him being retained for 2022.

Here is everything you need to know about Yuki Tsunoda:

How old is Yuki Tsunoda?

How tall is Yuki Tsunoda?

At 1.59m tall, Tsunoda is one of the smallest drivers to have ever competed in Formula 1 and is by some stretch the shortest of the current field.

What is Yuki Tsunoda’s salary?

His salary is currently undisclosed but is predicted to be around the $900,000 a year mark. His networth is also undisclosed but is predicted to be around $1m.

Who is Yuki Tsunoda’s girlfriend?

Yuki Tsunoda is currently believed to be single.

Tsunoda caught the eye in 2021 testing with his pace in the AlphaTauri and his first race in Bahrain was impressive, though he would have some dips along the way in his rookie year.

Early crashes in the season drew the ire of Helmut Marko but as the campaign wore on Tsunoda managed to couple his evident speed with a bit more clarity in his driving, with him finishing just outside the podium places in the final race of 2021 in Abu Dhabi.

Certainly, he is a driver with talent and at such a young age there is obviously a lot of progression that he can still make.

F1 is unforgiving, though, and so he will know that this year has to be one where he makes further strides with results and cuts down on the accidents and incidents even further if he wants a long run in the sport.
