DHL Fastest Pit Stop Award: 2016 Russian Grand Prix

Williams for fourth time: The pit crew from Grove have so far dominated the 2016 DHL Fastest Pit Stop Award. In all four races, the pit crew responsible for servicing Felipe Massa and Valtteri Bottas have completed the fastest stop of the race, as was again the case in the 2016 FORMULA 1 GRAND PRIX RUSSIAN at the Sochi Autodrom.

Felipe Massa’ s crew turned him around quick as a flash on the first of two pit stops. The white-clad mechanics sent their man back out into the race in just 2.23 seconds. None of the other teams in the pit lane were able to work any faster this Sunday afternoon!
