ABU DHABI, UAE - Both Mercedes and Ferrari are claiming to hold the record for the fastest pitstop yet recorded in Formula 1.

It was reported after the 2013 Japanese GP at Suzuka that Mercedes had stopped the clock during the race at 2.02sec, 0.03sec faster than the time set earlier in the season by Red Bull, but at almost exactly the same time Ferrari was also claiming a 1.95sec stop in Japan.

Auto Motor und Sport correspondent Michael Schmidt asked: "Who's right?" Mercedes' team manager Ron Meadows was quoted as saying: "It's always a question of what you measure, and how you measure it."

For instance, Ferrari reportedly times pitstops with its own overhead cameras while Mercedes uses timing data provided by the British broadcaster Sky.

Schmidt said Fernando Alonso's 1.95sec stop at Suzuka was actually timed at 2.11sec by the broadcaster.
