F1 Spanish GP: List of Shortest and Longest Pirelli Stints
Not everyone made four stops on Sunday during the Spanish GP. Six drivers made a 3 stopper while one driver stopped 5 times. Below, I’ve compiled a list based on my notes taken during the GP. As far as I can gather, the information below is accurate.
Shortest stint on Mediums
Mark Webber Medium (7 Laps)
Shortest Stint on Hard Compound
Nico Hulkenberg Hard (1 Lap) (Collision)
Jules Bianchi Hard (2 Laps)
(Giedo van der Garde Hard (1 Lap) (Retired)
Longest stint on Medium Compound
Valtteri Bottas Medium (22 Laps)
Paul di Resta Medium (19 Laps)
Longest Stint on Hard Compound
Charles Pic Hard (24 Laps)
Kimi Raikkonen Hard (21 Laps)
Six drivers ran a three stopper:
Nico Hulkenberg was the only driver to run a five stopper, however I believe his run in with Vernge in pit lane had much to do with that.
On Lap 8 Adrian Sutil and Force India pitted for a 74.026 second complete pit delta time which was over 55 seconds slower than the fastest time of the day.
