I remember back in the old days, you used to see the two metal contact strips sitting in each pit box. I’ve noticed today that they’ve gone, and actually can’t recall that last time I’ve seen them.
In that view, how exactly are cars timed in their pitbox these days?
Those metal strips had nothing to do with timing. They where there to earth the car during refueling
There’s a timing loop as they come into the pit lane to show that they are in the pit lane, I think they also use it to check the speed of the cars in the pitlane. I think they rely on a good old man with a stop watch to time the stop.
