I've always loved a good ballet
« on: February 16, 2014, 03:41:54 PM »
Pit stops happen in all kinds of racing but none faster than what you see in F1. Saw this today and I watched it over and over again trying to watch every move. It's a beautiful sight to behold and one that can't be called anything but a well rehearsed dance, a ballet if you will.

Just trying to do my part...

Car pulls in at 34 seconds and out at 38.  Last year Redbull was doing it in 3 seconds.

Yeah there are other videos on YouTube where they're faster but not from as good a vantage point.

And which team did better as a whole Farrari or Redbull?

Regardless who is a fraction of a second faster, it's really something to see.

Well since Redbull won the Manufactures championship and their driver the driver's championship, I would have to say Redbull did better.
