Red Bull F1’s Mark Weber may not be enjoying his days with the team as a racing driver, but during the Malaysian Grand Prix he, or rather his pit crew, set a new world record for the fastest pit stop in history. They changes four tires on Mark’s car in a dizzying 2.05 seconds, as confirmed by telemetry data.
It is staggeringly quick. This pit crew are so focused and well-coordinated, they could be brain surgeons! Just watch this video:
The previous record was 2.31 seconds set by McLaren’s Jenson Button during the last year’s German Grand Prix. Not sure if it’s possible to this faster than 2.05, but it’d be really cool if a team can do it in under 2 seconds.
