Ferrari: 1000 practice pit stops for the world champion / Formula 1

Scuderia Ferrari has not received the Constructors’ Cup since 2008. Not solely is the new automobile at the moment below development, however the mechanics at the Maranello manufacturing facility are additionally sweating it out with 1,000 pit cease workouts!


Red Bull Racing wins DHL Fastest Pit Stop for fifth time in 2022; A trophy donated by Formula 1 logistics firm DHL for the quickest pit stops all through the 12 months.

A persistently good tire change at prime stage is considered one of the puzzles that has led to Max Verstappen’s 35 GP wins and two world championships for the Dutchman.

Ferrari received the DHL Trophy in its first 12 months, however completed fourth general in 2022. Diego Iverno, who rose from gearbox mechanic to Formula 1 operations supervisor at Ferrari, goals to alter that. Therefore, he’s additionally accountable for altering the tires of the Italians.

His logic is charming. “In my expertise, it’s possible you’ll not win a Grand Prix due to a pit cease, however due to a nasty tire change, the victory ends in a short while,” Iverno advised Gazzetta dello Sport.

For this motive, Aiverno has created a rigorous month-to-month program lately: earlier than the begin of the season, 60 specialists make twenty pit stops twice a day. This would require the deft fingers of 60 mechanics, as Ferrari is not going to ship the identical individuals to every Grand Prix this season on account of the 23 races. During this preseason interval, Iverno estimates that every mechanic completes about 1,000 practice stops.

Aiverno emphasizes that it is not about making pit stops as quick as doable, however about making them versatile all the time. “With the introduction of the new wheels, the stops had been slower, however over time they grew to become sooner once more. We describe a cease with a dwell time of greater than 4 seconds as unsuccessful. Last season we had 9 p.c, however Mercedes solely had 4 p.c. We have to come back there too. From my standpoint, a decrease determine is not possible.”
