Ferrari F1 pit crew: pit stop in around two seconds

Watch Ferrari’s F1 pit crew do a pit stop in around two seconds. We had to watch this multiple times so that we could figure out what each crew member’s two second task was and how they were doing it so quickly. Pretty incredible. From Autosport.com, via Kottke:

With three people per wheel, two jack operators, and a handful of mechanics fulfilling other functions, each pit crew comprises nearly 20 people…

They are drilled incessantly at both the factory and during race weekends, with hundreds of pitstop practices until the process is instinctive.
