The pit stop

In addition to the performance of the drivers themselves, pit stops play a particularly important role in the outcome of a race. Opening up multiple options for race strategists, changing all four tyres in two seconds can provide a crucial advantage.

Pit crews typically consist of 20 mechanics with unique responsibilities during stops. Of the three mechanics that tend to each tyre, one operates the wheel gun, another one takes off the old tyre just before a third puts on the new one. Precision and timing is enormously important to work in harmony and make every tenth of a second count.

A supreme discipline
