Pit-stops in Formula 1 are vital for the outcome of a Grand Prix, not just to get the driver onto fresh rubber to finish a race, but also to jump or stay ahead of a driver. That's why thousandths of seconds are crucial for the execution of a good pit-stop.

Matt Dean of Mercedes gives an explanation on training. This year's pit-stops will be increasingly challenging due to the wider tyres, but the objective remains 2.5 seconds.
