Renault have reshuffled their pitstop crew for this weekend’s Japanese Grand Prix following the problem that marred Fernando Alonso’s second pitstop in China last weekend, has learned.

Although Renault’s director of engineering Pat Symonds said after the event that the pitstop problem was “one of those things”, the team have subsequently decided to make a change – which includes replacing the right rear wheel-nut man. understands that Renault’s dilemma in choosing to make the revision for Japan was made difficult by the fact that the Chinese crew delivered Giancarlo Fisichella the fastest pitstop of the race at his second stop.

So Renault is trying their best to please Fernando Alonso whichever way they can. But the question is will it make any difference in changing the pit-crew ? When the same crew did an amazing job for Fisichella ?

    Fernando was obvioussly cranky beyond what was prudent. Would Renault replace Fernando if he had a bad day, NO! Fernando is just the most visible part of one F1-team. And it is the team that wins. Any winner usualy needs some luck. Everybody contributes and requirements for perfection in F1 are extreme. But prudence should always reign. Excess or lack of anything causes problems. Prudent tolerance applies also in F1. Who is there to judge?
