During the European Grand prix last week, Mercedes team went on to break the record by changing the tyres in 1.92 seconds and won DHL 2016 Pit Stop award.

Pit stops are possibly the most visual evidence of why Formula One racing is a team sport. The DHL Fastest Pit Stop Award was established in 2015 to recognise outstanding teamwork and performance from the ‘unsung heroes’ who make a critically important contribution to the drivers’ success on the track.
