Mercedes clinches 2017 DHL pit stop award

14 November 2017 – Formula 1 champions Mercedes has clinched the 2017 DHL Fastest Pit Stop Award with a round to spare, taking the accolade from Williams.

While Williams led the way in Brazil, servicing Lance Stroll in just 2.10 seconds, Mercedes has amassed a sufficient points buffer over its rival to take the honours.

DHL introduced the award in 2015, with the overall title decided on a points classification – 25, 18, 15 and so on – for the 10 quickest pit stops at each Grand Prix.

Williams led the way mid-season but Mercedes moved clear, having set the quickest pit stop time in five of the eight races held since the summer break.

Mercedes has accrued 465 points, establishing a 51-point advantage to Williams, with only 43 up for grabs at the season-ending Abu Dhabi Grand Prix later this month.

Red Bull holds third place in the standings, with Ferrari fourth.

Despite losing its crown, Williams nonetheless continues to hold the accolade of the fastest pit stop of the year, having serviced Felipe Massa in just 2.02s at the British Grand Prix.
