Pit Crews Compared Across MotorsportsJune 23rd, 2015
Races are won and lost in the pits in motorsports all the time. Few things will frustrate a driver more than losing a lead because of mistakes in the pits. If you have ever had to change a tire on the side of the road, you know what a pain that process can be.
This video shows a bunch of pit stops from different motorsports and it is amazing how fast the crews can get the car fueled and back on the track. It’s also amazing that people don’t get run over regularly with the mass of action going on around cars zipping into the pits for service.
The speed that F1 crews can swap four tires is amazing. That car barely comes to a stop before it is heading back onto the track again with new rubber. Check out the video and see some pit crews getting it done.
