Pit Stops Will Take Longer

According to Andrew Green, Racing Point’s technical director, social distancing will mean that engine changes could take twice as long and because of this reliability will be key when F1 starts again. New procedures mean that the number of mechanics and engineers working on an F1 car at any one time has been reduced, and team members must also wear PPE. This could have a knock-on effect on pit stop times.

Green said “We can only have certain members of the crew working on the car at any one time, and that does limit the speed in which you can do a power unit change. When we get into the real meat of the car, and centre around the power unit, we’re probably looking at, in some cases, it taking twice as long.”

A way that F1 is seeking to protect those mechanics who need to break social distancing rules is imposing social bubbles between teams, meaning drivers and mechanics won’t be able to mingle with their competitors and rivals throughout the race weekend.
