Here’s a short video of a formula one pit stop during the Valencia Street Circuit race of the European Grand Prix. The race was simply amazing and the pit crews work with split-second timing to get their drivers in and out of the pits as quick as possible. A fast pit stop lasts about 5 seconds from stop to start. It’s impressive to see in person as there are approximately a dozen members of the pit crew involved.
While in Valencia, Sherry Ott allowed me to tag along with her as she was treated to the F1 race courtesy of Tour Spain and Valencia Tourism who were also gracious enough to let me stay and play with them.
