  1. That pit stop was pretty fabulous.

  2. I wonder if anyone captured a different angle of Hamilton’s gaff?

  3. Alonso desperatly tries to keep going on and on and on until he realizes the car is stuck in the gravel trap, but he’s trapped.

  4. The video of the Red Bull pit stop shows Vettel’s tires being changed, I’m pretty sure.

    1. Yeah, I don’t see any yellow on that Helmet. It looks like Vettel

      1. I think it’s just the black t-cam, which I believe is indeed Vettel.
