You’ve heard of the wildly popular “Evolution of Dance” video on YouTube?
Now there’s the Evolution of the Pit Stop (actually, it’s slightly mislabeled on YouTube as “Formula 1 Pit Stops 1950 & Today”).
In the 1950 Indianapolis 500, a full-service (four tires and fuel) pit stop took 67 seconds.
That’s right, 67 seconds for driver Bill Holland, who won the 500 the year before in 1949!
Fast forward to an F1 race in Melbourne, Australia last year, and a full stop was completed in literally the blink of an eye (you’ve got to see it for yourself).
The video below has already garnered over 700,000 views since it was posted five days ago. Check it out, you’ll be glad you did.
