That being said, after this video I think I have new respect for one aspect of auto racing, the pit crew. I knew it was their jobs to be fast so they can get their driver back on the course faster but I would have never guessed how much they have improved over the years.
This is a comparison video of a pit stop in 1950 and on in 2013. I feel like night and day isn’t quite a strong enough comparison. It’s more like, how bad The Simpsons is now compared to how good it was for the first 7 seasons.
Hold on to your pants and hit the jump for the video.
I had to watch to “today” part a couple of times to appreciate how good they are.
