The Fastest Pit Stop At The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix (VIDEO)


DHL Fastest Pit Stop Award 2016: Abu Dhabi - Red Bull Racing claimed the DHL Fastest Pit Stop Award at the 2016 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix to round off an eventful year. Max Verstappen's mechanics changed all of his four wheels in an amazing 2.11 seconds. Williams Martini Racing reigns supreme overall, however, in this awards category. The Grove-based outfit has won a remarkable 14 times in 21 races this season. Red Bull Racing drew level with Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 (three fastest stops each) thanks to achieving the fastest pit stop of the season finale, so there’s a tie for second place in the overall standings. Apart from the three teams already mentioned, only Renault Sport F1 have previously been able to achieve at least one fastest tyre change at the Grand Prix in Brazil. Sahara Force India took second and third place in Abu Dhabi with the shortest pit stops for Sergio Perez and Nico Hülkenberg taking 2.23 and 2.27 seconds respectively. An unusually high number of tyre changes, 62 in all, were carried out during the rain-hit race in Brazil which was red-flagged twice, but in Abu Dhabi, drivers came in only 38 times for fresh boots. More than half of the stops (21) lasted less than three seconds – a strong result overall and evidence of the great work being done by teams.
