McLaren posted fastest pitstop in F1 history

Published

McLaren cleared their pit-stop problems and they are doing this job in right way now. McLaren set a new stationary pitstop record in Formula 1 history for European Grand Prix.

McLaren pit squad done a 2.6-second stop at Lewis Hamilton’s first stop in Valencia to set a new record in Formula 1.But Hamilton’s second pitstop’s time losing very due to front Jackie stuck.

The Woking based F1 squad’s sporting director Sam Michael says the timing data shows that the crews are doing a improved job than the critics suggest.

“The guys are ignoring all the criticism, because they know they are good and we already had the fastest stationary time in Montreal before the Valencia performance,” Michael told Autosport.

“The job they are doing at the moment is spot on, and I have felt it coming for the last two or three races. We’ve done a lot of work internally on the procedures and equipment, and we’ve been pushing them on a lot.

“And now we are in a world where we are dealing with milliseconds, rather than tenths. It is as competitive as the aero game now.”

“It has always been like that, but it just so happens that we have managed to get more pace than our original target,” he said.

“Our target is not to do a 2.3s stop before the driver reacts – it is to be sub three-second on average. If you look at the areas where we have had mistakes and issues in recent races, they are no longer because we are pushing to try and improve time.”
