This Entire Pit Stop Is Just 2 Seconds Long


(Video Link)

I suspect that this video shows the Ferrari team at the Australian Grand Prix last year. Watch what a perfectly trained pit team can do. The car stops at 0:35. It moves at 0:37. In those 2 seconds, the team replaces all 4 wheels. Look at how well they work together--like the fingers on one hand.

A quick correction: there is no refueling here. F1 hasn't allowed refueling during the race in several years. There were issues with drivers leaving the pits with the fuel hoses still in the car, which was deemed a safety hazard.

This year (2014) there is also a fuel limit of 100kg (about 30 gal), of which 1 kg has to remain in the fuel tank at the end of the race for testing purposes.

It's still impressive to change all four tires in 2 seconds.
