Video: Where Williams managed to beat Red Bull in the Mexican GP

It was a quiet weekend for the Williams squad in Mexico, but there was one element of the race in which they proved to be quicker than any other team.

Williams had a difficult race in the Mexican Grand Prix, but they did manage to beat Red Bull - and every other team - when it came to the fastest pit-stop.

The Grove-based outfit earned the DHL Fastest Pit Stop Award for achieving the quickest stop with George Russell, with the time clocked at 2.17 seconds. This was enough to beat Max Verstappen's team, who came in second with a pit-stop of 2.27s, whilst Ferrari's 2.33s stop for Carlos Sainz put them in third.

Unfortunately there are no race points awarded for the fastest pit-stop accolade, meaning that it didn't help Williams in building even more of an advantage over nearest challengers Alfa Romeo in P8 of the Constructors' Championship.

However, in the DHL Fastest Pit Stop Award standings for 2021, Williams are looking strong in third place. Red Bull have already secured the top spot, whilst Mercedes are in P2.

Watch the video below to see Williams' fast Mexican GP pit-stop in action!
