Williams sets new '17 pit-stop standard
15 June 2017 – Williams completed the fastest pit-stop of 2017 so far when it serviced Lance Stroll during the Canadian Grand Prix, ensuring its place at the top of the overall standings.
Stroll started his home race from 17th on the grid, moving into the points-paying positions with a sizeable first stint on Ultra Softs, pitting for Super Softs on lap 25/70.
After a 2.17s stop, almost 0.4s quicker than his previous best, Stroll recovered lost places, eventually coming home in ninth position, marking his first points in Formula 1.
Mercedes put both of its cars in the top four, Valtteri Bottas pitting in 2.34s, and Lewis Hamilton in 2.57s, sandwiching Force India driver Sergio Pérez (2.55s).
Williams, which topped the 2016 pit-stop charts, continues to lead the way in 2017, holding 170 points, 12 clear of Mercedes, in the official DHL fastest pit-stop battle.
Formula 1's fastest ever pit-stop stands at 1.92 seconds, set by Red Bull at the 2013 US Grand Prix, and Williams at the 2016 European Grand Prix (Azerbaijan).
