We’ll keep this brief, because, by its very nature, that’s what this story is about.

But now, having sharpened up their fast-twitch muscles, the Red Bull crew have gone even quicker. They completed a pit stop at Hockenheim in an incredible 1.88 seconds. Now, we’re not sure about you, but we’ve had sneezes that have taken longer.
