Jenson Button’s rapid tire change at Hockenheim was the fastest of all time.
Jenson Button's podium finish at the German Grand Prix over the weekend was due to a great start from sixth on the grid, some typically decisive moves, and what was the fastest pitstop in the history of Formula One. Changing all four tires in a mere 2.31 seconds enabled the speedy Brit to get out on track ahead of rival Sebastian Vettel, which proved pivotal in his battle for a podium finish.
"I think it's important to place some of the credit for Jenson's second place with our pitcrew: their second stop for Jenson was the fastest Formula 1 pitstop of all time, with a stationary time of just 2.31s," said team McLaren team principal Martin Whitmarsh.
