The World Record Pit Stop Time Confirms That F1 Drivers Aren't The Fastest At The Track

Motorsport

1.92-seconds is all it takes to get a fresh pair of rubber.

The speed at which Formula 1 racers travel is high enough to shred the nerve endings of most sane human beings, but the drivers aren’t the only ones who do their jobs at light speed. The pit crews play a huge role in winning a race because the faster that they can change out worn tires and refuel a car, the faster a driver’s overall lap time. That’s why any driver with checkered flag aspirations should want to give this team a call. The time it takes them to swap out all four tires?

1.92-seconds, a number that makes us wish that other automotive services like fuel stops and car washes were done by pit crews.
