Yeah, F1 makes other series look bad, but in reality they use more bodies under more liberal rules. The number of people on a F1 pit gang is amazing.

That said, I think it's very cool that the wrench guys now try to engage the new tire even as it's in mid-air, before it's ever affixed to the wheel hub.

The biggest delay I see from the quickest teams is how long it takes them to release the car once the tires are on. Ferrari often have a small pause, which kills their time. Maybe they're still thinking about this?
