They say you can win races by the strategies used in the pit-stop. Formula 1 is one of the glamorous car racing sport in the world of car race. Not only in Formula One races but also in other races such A1 and other car races one can find the pit-stops. In Formula One, a race lasts from 50 to 60 laps depending upon the length of the race circuit. During the high speed race between the cars, the car runs out of oil or it needs some tweaking; change of tyres; repair or replace damaged parts or even a change of the drivers. Normally, in Formula One, pit-stops last up to 5 to 10 seconds. If it takes more than 8 seconds, then there is a danger of losing a track position. Similarly, if it takes less time to for a pit-stop to complete compared to the other cars then it may result in gaining a track position. When it comes to pit-stop the teams Ferrari and McLaren are the best.

In motorsports, a pit stop is where a racing vehicle stops in the pits during a race for refuelling, new tires, repairs, mechanical adjustments, a driver change, or any combination of the above.
