What is the average age of an F1 driver?

Category: Drivers

The average age of a driver on the current F1 grid (2022) is 27.75.

The oldest driver on the grid this season is Alpine’s Fernando Alonso, who turned 41 on July 29, 2022. Alonso’s first season in the sport was in 2001, meaning his career now spans three separate decades.

The youngest is Yuki Tsunoda of AlphaTauri who is only 22.

The oldest driver to start an F1 race was Monocan Louis Chiron at 55 years and 292 days he placed 6th in the 1955 Monaco GP. He entered another race at 58 and 277 days but recorded a DNQ. No doubt the average age was a lot higher back then.
