The Fastest Pit Stop At The Brazilian Grand Prix (VIDEO)


DHL Fastest Pit Stop Award 2016: Brazil - Renault Sport F1 Team secured the DHL Fastest Pit Stop Award at the Autódromo José Carlos Pace for the first time since their return to Formula 1. Jolyon Palmer’s second tyre change took only 2.35 seconds, an excellent time in view of the tricky weather conditions for both driver and mechanics. And it wasn’t a one-off, as the third-fastest stop at Interlagos was also undertaken by the Renault pit crew on the Briton's car. Second place in this special awards category went to series winners Williams Martini Racing. Valtteri Bottas was stationary in the pits for only six hundredths of a second longer than Palmer on his best time before being able to continue on fresh tyres. The number of pit stops lasting less than three seconds, 14 in all, was relatively small in São Paulo due to the heavy rain, but the total number of tyre changes was extremely high at 62, especially in view of the fact that one driver, Haas F1 Team's Romain Grosjean, was unable to compete in the race and three more retired at an early stage. In the normal way of things, they would have added to the statistics with more stops
