The new procedure has markers set in pitlane designating where each team’s pitbox is located, so that the rider knows where to turn in. The outgoing bike set at a 40º angle to the front of the pitbox pointing to the pit lane exit. The incoming bike will head towards the box entrance in an approximate opposite angle of 40º to the pitbox entrance, stopping on a red box designation on the pavement in front of the garage. The rider would then swap bikes and the angle of the outgoing bike gives the rider a better position to see if the path is clear (although a “lollipop” mechanic—so-named because of the small hand-held sign he must use to signal the rider—still has the final say in when it is safe to leave). With this system the pit lane would be free of mechanics, needing just three: one very close to the box exit to hold the outgoing bike, plus the lollipop mechanic, and one more to catch the incoming bike. The incoming bike could be immediately pushed inside the garage, instead of staying in the pit lane until the team mechanics can wait until the traffic clears as normally happens with the procedure used until now.
