Ever wondered how Formula One teams execute those lightning-fast tyre changes at pit stops?
A new video from Red Bull Racing lifts the lid on the process and shows just how difficult it is to pull off.
Pit stops have been a part of F1 for decades, but Red Bull have turned them into an art form, tearing through car maintenance in two seconds flat. A well-oiled machine that flies by in a flash.
Red Bull race team manager Jonathan Wheatley admitted that it takes between 18 and 20 people all working in tandem to successfully nail a tyre change.
“What’s important is to know you can bring the car in and service it reliably every single and being able to do 2-second put stops,” Wheatley said.
“The magic really is in how these guys take the wheel off and put the wheel on without banging into each other.
“We spend a lot of time looking at the choreography of a pit stop. Every single person makes a massive contribution.”
