The FIA Masters Historic Formula One Championship is the ultimate place for Formula One cars of a golden age.

Catering for 3-litre engined Formula One cars from 1966 through to 1985, FIA Masters Historic Formula One takes us back to an era in which Cosworth DFV power and a creative car designer could win races, long before wind tunnels and energy drinks were created!

Formula 1: Pit stop practice
The teams practice pit stops - changing tires, making adjustments to the car, sometimes in less than two seconds - as they would in the race. 

"The contest between pit crews is as fierce as any facet of competition in F1. Often it’s simply a battle for bragging rights; occasionally a chance to gain or defend a place; very occasionally it will be the difference between winning and losing. It’s fascinating to watch. The modern pit stop is as intricate as any ballet. Upwards of 20 individuals working in well-practiced harmony, a top team changing four wheels, adjusting a front wing, cleaning a rear wing and perhaps scrubbing a visor and clearing radiators in under three seconds or, on a really good day, under two…"    - formula1.com
