Side By Side (Technically Top On Bottom) Comparison Of F1 Pitstop In 1981 Versus 2019

May 28, 2019

This is a top-on-bottom comparison of an F1 race pitstop in 1981 versus 2019. In the 38 years between the two, pit crews have managed to shave around twenty seconds off the time of a tire change. Of course that 1981 pitstop probably would have been significantly faster if the crew chief didn't lean in for so many kisses. Chill bro, you can make out with the race is over (plus there'll be champagne!).

Keep going for the full video.

Thanks to Marc B, who agrees the key to a quick pitstop is only employing members of the Flash family.

    So what's your secret of being so fast?
    We don't actually change anything.

    But they dropped all the loving emotion that the 80s had, when they got rid of the 2 mandatory smooches to the driver.

  • To be fair, this isn't the average speed in each year. This is a slower pit in 81 vs one of the fastest pits ever but I get the point. We got gud.

    Well, even in 1981 F1 pit stops were quicker than Formula E pit stops.
