Also, the crew was pre-positioned on both sides of the car. In most genres of racing, the crews must wait till the car stops before they rush around and get into position. But either way, this is pretty impressive. Chris says: In F1 racing refuelling during the race doesn’t happen any more. Full set tire changes can be done in 2.5 seconds by the pit teams now. Brian says: I learn something new every day. So the cars are so fuel efficient, they can go a whole race on a tank? I want one of those! jbroaf says: Not only a full race but a full race at 100+ miles per hour…. Brian says: Oh, only 100? I’m used to NASCAR, with speeds often approaching 200. Jesse says: Yeah they do lots of strange things in F1…for example like turn right.Seriously though F1 cars do approach 200mph on some tracks they also can see 5+ G’s in the corners. PhilA says: come on, they do a LOT more than just “turn right” – I’d LOVE to see a Nascar driver try to drive a F1 or Touring track, I think they’d get confused at the first bend when their Nascar car loses grip on a corner and they slide off into the tires – then again, they are used to crashing every few races :-P Trisha says: How about NHRA where they can reach up to 320 MPH in a quarter mile? Corban says: Kind of like comparing the 100 meter dash to the marathon. Brad Williams says: It took my computer longer to load the video than it did for them to change the tires. Gwen says: DAAANNG!! Not a race follower, I was wondering what sci-fi movie this was from.
