    The team have been quick to point out that the pit crew were on form for most of the afternoon.
    'They claim that data from the race shows that the 2008 world champion's first stop in Valencia was actually the "fastest stationary pit stop in motor racing history" at 2.6sec,' the paper said.

    Adding: 'McLaren had the two fastest pit-lane times during Sunday's race - a 19.36sec for Hamilton and a 19.64sec for Jenson Button - while their average stationary pit-stop time, discounting the one which arguably cost Hamilton the chance to fight for victory, was a sprightly 2.95 seconds.

    'Mercedes were the previous record holders of the fastest stationary pit stop, achieving a time similar to McLaren's 2.6secs in Korea last year. But the Woking team believe they were just quicker.'

    So they make BIG mistakes which can cost them more points or event the win, yet they manage to set the fastest pit stop, hows that? :D
  2. Ironic I would say :p
  3. Sam Michael is doing good job after all.
  4. Now they just need to stop making mistakes that cost them 14 seconds in the pits.
