There's no doubting the fact that the Red Bull Racing team strive for racing excellence. In Adrian Newey and Max Verstappen, the four-time world champions have two of F1's most driven individuals on the current paddock.

However, Red Bull's quest for perfection goes beyond just individual talent as the team has set a series of consecutive records when it comes to making pitstops. Here is a list of the five quickest pitstops in F1 history all made by the Red Bull F1 team.

Brazil 2019

The quickest pitstop in F1 history occured at the 2019 Brazilian Grand Prix. Red Bull managed to change all four tires on Verstappen's car in a barely beleivable 1.82 seconds.

Portugal 2020

Falling just four one hundreths of a second off their record time, Red Bull managed to execute Albon's pitstop to perfection at the 2020 Portuguese Grand Prix.

Russia 2020

Tied with their efforts in Portugal, Red Bull released Verstappen out from his pit box in Sochi at a blindingly quick 1.86 seconds.

Germany 2019

At the time the quickest pitstop ever, Red Bull sent Verstappen out on fresh rubber in 1.88 seconds which at the time was scarcely believable.

Russian 2020

Red Bull team were on fire at last year's Russian Grand Prix, not only they did manage to get Verstappen out on new tires in 1.86 seconds but they almost repeated the feat with Albon who they sent out in a rather slow 1.89 seconds only good enough for the fifth-fastest pitstop ever!
