2016 DHL Fastest Pit Stop Award


A Formula One pit stop is much more than just stopping, changing tyres and accelerating away. Absolute precision, perfect teamwork and split-second decisions are needed for a smooth pit stop. 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.
