What’s your “Pit Strategy” ?

Life is like a formula one race , yes , keeps reminding you to enter your “Pit Stop*” , meet your “Pit Crew” , refuel and run . Pit Strategy is a trade off of time lost in the pits versus how much time may be gained on the race track of life through the benefits of pit stops.

If you are wondering Why stop ?– a race car travelling at 160 kilometers per hour will travel approximately 45 meters per second , so during a ten-second pit stop, all of a car's competitors will gain approximately one-half kilometer over the stopped car , still the driver stops. So spare those 10 seconds , they are critical ! and Enjoy the race called life !

Pit Stop – In Motorsports a pit stop is where a racing car stops in the pits during a race for refuelling, new tires, repairs, mechanical adjustments, a driver change, or any combination of the above. By making pit stops cars can carry less fuel, and therefore be lighter and faster, and use softer tires that wear faster but provide more grip.
