My neighbor is a huge F1 fan, and when he told me three seconds was a super long pit stop, I couldn't believe him. He spent the next half hour showing me pit stop videos. It blew my mind honestly.
I thought this was perfectly looped until I realized they did it twice and the gif restarted.
Until you leave your leg infront of the tire
This is Max Verstappen and Daniel Ricciardo coming in to the pits in the Chinese GP last Sunday.
Red Bull double stacked the pit stop twice - the video is from the first stop.
Later in the race the Safety Car was deployed and Red Bull called both cars in again to switch on to new soft compound tires, whereas the front-runners stayed out on old medium compound tires. The change allowed the Red Bull cars to charge through the field with Ricciardo eventually winning the race.
e. fixed up facts
This was insane to watch live but then they went and did it *again* (under safety car).
It was a fantastic move that caught everyone off-guard and probably cost Ferrari and Mercedes the race.
I love how they completely trust that they’ve got the job done properly that it won’t cause an accident at hundreds of miles per hour.
If you took your car to the garage and they said it was done before your ass hit the seat let alone had time to have some coffee and read the free magazines you’d tell them to go back and do it again and double check this time.
Imagine being the guy who didnt quite screw the bolt in properly. I could easily picture that being a David Mitchell sketch or something.
A lot of things happened right here. Both drivers came in with a perfect delta i.e the second driver wasn't waiting stationary behind the first car. The pit crew had both sets of 4 tires ready, and performed both pitstops without any hiccups, and even more impressively they did all of this on short notice as the safety car had just been deployed and both of the cars were close to passing the pit lane entry.
Edit: Oops the gif is actually the first pit, but they did do this again during the safety car.
