LONDON - A Formula 1 pit stop could take less than two seconds this season, according to World champion team Red Bull which has claimed a record of 2.05sec from the race.The British team said that beat McLaren's previous record of 2.31sec set in Germany in 201 on five separate occasions at the controversial Malaysian Grand Prix.TWO-SECOND BARRIERThe achievement attracted little attention at the time, with the main focus on the Red Bull drivers who ended the race barely talking to each other after Sebastian Vettel ignored team instructions and overtook Mark Webber to win.Red Bull said its car data showed stationary times of 2.13 for each driver's first change of tyres. Webber's second stop was recorded as 2.05 with his third and fourth stops timed at 2.21 and 2.26.The team said: "There's always a quicker stop out there and it's possible this season we'll see the magical two-second barrier breached at some point."Pit stops in F1 have become almost a blink-and-miss experience since mid-race refuelling was banned in 2010, with teams developing a range of technology to shave off further fractions of a second.
