Red Bull show they're unrivalled when it comes to this

For the third time this season, Red Bull have completed a pit stop under the magical two-second mark. Max Verstappen's change of tyres in Baku once again showed that the Milton Keynes outfit can't be beat in the pit lane.

It's no secret that Red Bull are very good when it comes to quick pit stops. The Milton Keynes outfit have been unbeatable so far this season, managing five pit stops of two seconds in six races. Three have even been under the two-second mark.

Red Bull hold the world record for the fastest pit stop after completing one in 1.82 seconds at the 2019 Brazilian Grand Prix. Their ability was once again on display last season, completing nine pit stops under two seconds.

They've already complete three pit stops under that time this season, including one at the Azerbaijan Grand Prix. Although Red Bull were on course for a one-two finish, it wasn't to be as Max Verstappen's tyre gave way with just laps remaining. Nevertheless, the Dutchman was fitted with fresh rubber in a stop that lasted just 1.98 seconds.

It's the fourth time this season Red Bull have finished with the fastest pit stop, with Mercedes and Aston Martin getting the better of them once each.

Check out the fastest pit stop in Azerbaijan in the video below.
