The Fastest Pit Stop At The United States Grand Prix (VIDEO)

DHL Fastest Pit Stop Award 2016: USA - Red Bull Racing did it again! The Milton Keynes-based team executed the fastest pit stop of the race in Austin, Texas. The RBR pit crew have already managed this once before during the current season. When Max Verstappen called in for his first new set of tyres at the Circuit of the Americas, his car was stationary for only 2.10 seconds – an impressive time. However, the crew of the young Dutchman were only marginally faster than that of Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 driver Nico Rosberg. His mechanics needed just hundredths of a second longer to change wheels on Sunday. Taking third place in this side-competition was McLaren-Honda's Jenson Button whose pit crew put in a strong 2.14-second performance. Of the 45 pit stops during the United Grand Prix race, 23 took less than three seconds.
