(I know this is the old pitlane, I couldnt find a nice aerial shot of the new one but the corner before the boxes is roughly the same)

You can see that the car for the first pitbox has to make a tighter turn (red line) to drive into the box than the car that enters the 2nd pitbox (blue line).
Therefore the total distance travelled for the complete pitstop is also longer for the red line
