If you’re like me, you probably think pit stops are generally the same across all motorsports. I mean, it’s just “pull up, your crew takes care of your tires and gas, and you leave and go back to racing.”
Of course, that’s not the case at all. That point is illustrated in this video, posted a few days ago. It shows several different motorsports, how pit stops vary in all of them, and that there are some major differences. For example, F1 cars aren’t allowed to take fuel during a race, while Formula E drivers need to switch cars completely during pit stops.
Even if you’re not that big of a racing fan, this video is pretty interesting, especially because it teaches you that some motorsports feature mid-race driver changes that are nothing like the one from the beginning of Talladega Nights.
