Video Compares Pit Stops in Formula 1, NASCAR, Formula E and More

By Casey Chan on at

F1 Racing is like driving jets on the ground. NASCAR is like racing monster cars in sheet metal around an oval. Indy Cars are powerful beasts themselves. Each type of racing has their own unique demands and needs. Here is a video that shows the difference between pit-stops in F1 Racing, NASCAR, Indy Car, Formula E and World Endurance Championship (WEC).

F1 Racing is the fastest as they have the most crew members (14+) and don’t allow re-fuelling mid-race. Indy Car and NASCAR uses six crew members and re-fuels. Formula E only has two crew members but the driver changes cars completely. And the WEC uses two crew members to change the tires, two crew members to change drivers and a new driver comes in during the pit stop.
