Pierre Gasly will not face a race ban after escaping punishment for an incident during the Brazil Sprint race.

The AlphaTauri driver was summoned to the stewards for 'driving unnecessarily slowly' on the Reconnaissance Lap before the Brazil Sprint.

After hearing from the driver, the stewards decided to issue Gasly with a warning.

This means that Gasly remains on ten superlicence penalty points, but still walks a tightrope for the few Grands Prix.

If he accumulates 12 penalty points in a twelve-month period, he will be forced to sit out a race.

At the Mexico City Grand Prix, McLaren became the first team to complete a sub-two second pit-stop since the introduction of the new F1 pit-stop regulations, changing all four tyres on Daniel Ricciardo's car in 1.98 seconds.

So how did the team do this, and what changes have been made to F1's pit-stop procedure in the last couple of years?
