British GP – Some of The Best of F1

I have a love-hate relationship with F1. Normally, I am a crazy fan of the sport that is unpredictable, exciting, glamorous and sophisticated. To win a race, let alone a long season, a team/driver needs a perfect weekend, starting from preparation, practice to qualifying and the real race. Factors that play a significant role in a race include tires, strategy, luck, weather, drivers, pit crews and circuits. Nonetheless, F1 tends to be dominated by one or two teams before regulation changes. In the past, it was Ferrari with Schumacher, followed by McClaren, Red Bull and Mercedes. Some races are incredibly boring as there is no overtaking (I am talking about you street circuits and Australian GP)

The very last Grand Prix in UK featured some of the best F1 has to offer. The fastest pit stop ever is 1.91 seconds. In that insanely short amount of time, the pit crew lifted the car up, removed the old wheels, fitted in the new ones, lowered the car down, signaled to the driver and got out of the way. The muscle memory and the collaboration are unreal. Pit crew work can play a tremendous factor in a team’s success as you will see later on, but first enjoy the world’s record pit stop

The next highlight is the battle between two great young stars Charles LeClerc and Max Verstappen. Both of them are 21 years old or younger. The battle was enthralling and showed the talent two young men possessed. It’s incredible they fought at 180mph with the masterful control and techniques
