For the third time in this season, Red Bull have broken the pit stop world record. In the Formula 1 Brazilian GP, they repaired Max Verstappen on the first of his three stops in an astonishing 1.82 seconds, cutting six hundredths off their own record set at Hockenheim.
It also means that they have wrapped up the DHL Fastest Pit Stop Award for this year. With one race to go, they are now 52 points ahead of second-placed Williams. The stop in Brazil was their eighth DHL Fastest pit stop of 2019 and takes them up to a total of five for the season.
Brazil was excellent for Red Bull in every way because they not only set a new world record for a tire change. Max Verstappen, beginning from pole position, drove an exceptional race, in which he held world champion Lewis Hamilton on the back and won with a three-stop strategy.
Red Bull become the first Formula 1 team to victoriously defend the DHL Fastest Pit Stop Award the following year. Read more about the Fastest Pit Stop Award here.
