Preview – Speed with Guy Martin

Guy Martin

Speed junky Guy Martin returns to our screens with more time conscious challenges. He joins the Williams Martini Racing team to see if he can make it as a member of the elite Formula 1 pit crew.

Guy has had to learn the split-second timing that sees 22 pit crew members perform 34 different actions without getting in each other’s way. He has since conducted more than 100 practice stops, including one where a last-minute call meant he didn’t have time to put on his gloves so he ended up handling the 100-degree tyre with a bare hand.

Having earned the right to join the team at the Belgian Grand Prix, Guy finds himself in the thick of four pit stops, changing tyres for veteran Felipe Massa and 18-year-old Lance Stroll.
