Lewis Hamilton, Valtteri Bottas and the Mercedes pit crew pulled off a flawlessly smooth double pit-stop during the Chinese Grand Prix on Sunday.
The current top two in this year's championship initially raised eyebrows when they pulled into the pit lane within a few seconds of each other during the 37th lap of the race.
The move is known as a 'double-stack' and is considered risky as it can result in lost time when one driver has to wait for their teammate to be serviced.
However, Hamilton had his tyres changed and was set on his way so quickly that Bottas didn't need to slow down before his wheels were swapped and he rejoined the race in an equally rapid fashion.
One eagle-eyed fan captured the supremely executed procedure, which has racked up over half a million views since being posted on the Formula 1 Instagram page.

Mercedes team boss Toto Wolff said the move was intended to ease pressure from Sebastian Vettel and praised those involved.
“The choreography for everybody who understands Formula 1 was really impressive," he said. "It came so far that even [Mercedes chairman] Dieter Zetsche called all the mechanics together and said he hadn’t seen anything like this before.
"How it functioned today, I can only really take my hat off to the mechanics and everyone involved around the stops, and every day in the factory I hear the guns working when they train, and this was harvesting that hard work that thousands of stops they have changed."
The crew's efficiency certainly paid off as Hamilton and Bottas finished first and second in Formula 1's 1,000th world championship race, with the latter crossing the line seven seconds ahead of third-placed Vettel.
The pair have enjoyed an excellent start to this season and became the first to manage a 1-2 in the opening three races since Nigel Mansell and Riccardo Patrese achieved the same for Williams in 1992.
If their pit crew maintains this near perfect form, they could grab quite a few more this year.
