Next time you go to your local tyre shop, demand a 'Mark Webber change', just like this. During the Malaysian Grand Prix last month, the Red Bull team managed to break records. Not with the fastest car or anything like that, but with the fastest pit stop, where all four wheels are changed, ever made. In just 2.05 seconds. Incredible.

This is What It Looks Like When Drivers Race Each Other Right Off the Road In a 180MPH F1 Car

For anyone who didn't see the Italian grand prix this weekend, we saw some seriously insane skills from Fernando Alonso, handling a car hurtling along at 180mph, on the grass, mere centimetres from the side of Vettel's illegal manoeuvre.
