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

DHL Fastest Pit Stop Award 2016: Mexico - The winners of the series have triumphed again! Williams Martini Racing achieved the fastest pit stop of the race in Mexico City. Felipe Massa was stationary for a mere 2.06 seconds on Lap 14, by which time his mechanics had already changed all four tyres, enabling the team to win the award for the fourteenth time this season. Only the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 team (3x) and Red Bull Racing (2x) have been anywhere near as successful this year. Williams Martini Racing were declared the overall winners of the 2016 DHL Fastest Pit Stop Award several weeks ago. Mercedes placed directly behind the Grove-based outfit yet again in Mexico. The Silver Arrows pit crew booked second and third place in the hunt for the fastest pit stop as they serviced the cars of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg, who also finished up front in the race. Their times for changing tyres were terrific at 2.09 and 2.12 seconds. 18 of the 28 pit stops at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriguez took less than three seconds.
