All of Brembo's numbers for the 2015 MotoGP Championship

12/21/2015

2015 Brembo MotoGP statistics

In 2015 all 18 MotoGP races were won by bikes equipped with Brembo brakes. But this, fortunately for us, is no longer anything new. Just as it is nothing new for us to have taken all 54 podium finishes of the season in the top category.

But the goal we never thought we would achieve, especially in a championship where everyone has free selection of their braking system supplier, was sweeping all the points. As you certainly know, for each race the first 15 riders to finish are awarded points.  This is not the way it has always been because in 1949 only the first 5 earned points, whereas in 1992 only the first 10 finishers in each GP had the chance to improve their position in the standings.

With 25 or 26 riders on the grid for each GP, the odds that the only bike in the race without Brembo brakes would not place in the top 15 at least once are extremely low:  based on our calculations there was a 1.6 percent chance. And yet, this is exactly what happened because all 2,520 points awarded in the 2015 MotoGP season went to bikes fitted with Brembo brakes.

What's more, the bikes with Brembo brakes proved their worth even on race weekend Saturdays: all the bikes that went through to compete in the 2015 Q2 sessions had Brembo braking systems. This is a sign of the impressive performance of Brembo brakes in qualifying, where many riders pull out all the stops and ride at breakneck speeds in order to put the best possible times on the boards.

Once upon a time there was Brembo, the Cinderella of the Motorcycle Grand Prix queen class. It was the end of the 1970s and very few Teams used Brembo brakes, which were little-known outside of Italy.

Years passed and with continuous technological improvements, Brembo acquired increasingly more new customers. Leading to this year, when all of the competing bikes in the queen class, except for Karel Abraham's Honda, used Brembo brakes.

So, it's no surprise that Brembo took a full slate of victories (18 out of 18 races), podium positions (54 out of 54), and leading laps (all of the 443 races). This just proves again that Brembo brakes know how to make the best of the Honda, Yamaha, and Ducati bikes.

Even the returning Suzuki and Aprilia bikes chose to trust Brembo brakes. The current MotoGP almost seems like a mono brake, but with a small difference: it is against the rules to obligate the Teams to use Brembo brakes. The choice is up to them and correlates exclusively to the superior technology of these systems.
