McLaren’s pit stop gaffes witnessed in the first half of the 2012 season are behind the British team as it has now upped the ante this year.

At the German Grand Prix last season, McLaren registered a pit stop of 2.31 seconds, changing all the four wheels on Jenson Button’s car in that window, in what is documented as a world record.

Now in 2013, the Woking-based outfit is aiming to go even lower than that time.

“Last year, the McLaren pit crew was consistently the fastest crew in the second half of the season,” said McLaren sporting director Sam Michael. “We made a lot of progress during the year with the introduction of technology and working on the technique of the pit crew.

“During the season we saw plenty of signs that we can get down to a low two-second pit stop and even below; sub two-seconds. So our target definitely for 2013 is to target consistently average under 2.5 seconds (per pit stop).

“And I think that will naturally result in a pit stop times that are close to the two second mark, perhaps below,” he hoped.
