Red Bull claim new record with 2.05 second pit stop in Malaysia

Red Bull Racing have officially completed the fastest pit stop ever seen, with a 2.05 second stop being recorded during the Malaysian Grand Prix.

Mark Webber made his second pit stop on Lap 19 of the Grand Prix, and remained stationary for just over 2 seconds. This breaks the previous record, held by McLaren at the 2012 German Grand Prix, of 2.31 seconds for Jenson Button.

Amazingly, Red Bull managed to break McLaren’s record five times during the Malaysian Grand Prix, although not each pit stop was faster than the one before. They are as follows:

Driver Lap Time
Mark Webber 19 2.05
Sebastian Vettel 5 2.13
Mark Webber 7 2.13
Mark Webber 31 2.21
Mark Webber 43 2.26

It is almost certain now that some team – probably Red Bull – will breach the 2-second barrier during this season.
