F1 | Why are Red Bull’s pit stops so fast?

Red Bull has been clearly superior in terms of pit stops during this 2020, but it is not surprising considering that in 2019 at the Brazilian Grand Prix the Scuderia set the world record for the fastest pit stop ever recorded in 1 : 82 seconds. A true masterpiece of technique, but what exactly is behind this success? Christian Horner explains it to us, a success that Ferrari seems unable to glimpse even with binoculars if we consider the average pit stops of the two red drivers.

“The secret lies in a combination of several factors. It all starts with the strong understanding between our sporting director Jonathan Wheatley and chief mechanic Phil Turner and has its roots in hard training. Everything else consists of details and training, training and more training. We are working on small improvements that add up to the rest to make a difference, working hard on consistency. Because it’s not enough to make the fastest stop in one race, you also need not to make mistakes in the others “
