McLaren sets new pit-stop record
23 July 2012 – McLaren has suffered more than its fair share of pit-stop gremlins in 2012, but since Silverstone the Woking team has been red hot with its wheel changes. At Hockenheim, it managed a new world record of 2.31 seconds for Jenson Button.
“Although there's previously been some negative talk about our pit-stops, the boys did an unbelievable job today,” Button said after the German Grand Prix. “My fastest stop was a 2.31 seconds - I'm told, the fastest pit-stop in history.”
Button’s second place and resultant 18 points helped to lift McLaren back ahead of Lotus for third position in the Constructors’ Championship.
