Ferrari may have had a disappointing Saudi Arabian Grand Prix, with Carlos Sainz and Charles Leclerc finishing sixth and seventh respectively, but the Scuderia can console themselves with the knowledge that they completed the fastest pit stop of Sunday's race in Jeddah.

Leclerc's Lap 16 stop was timed at 2.10 seconds, 0.26s faster than the Alpine mechanics managed to change all four tyres on Esteban Ocon’s car.

The Saudi Arabian Grand Prix was 2023's second race in succession where Leclerc's mechanics have been the swiftest to change all four tyres, also doing so in a race-leading 2.22 seconds at the opening round in Bahrain.
