In 2013, while making the most of regulatory stability, Brembo introduced a new type of carbon fiber for brake discs: compared with CCR, the CER material guaranteed maximum warm-up times, a wide range of use and a very linear response.
Even when faced with new regulations in 2014, Brembo was ready for the change. During that season, the turbo engines which had been absent since 1988 returned but displacement was limited to 1.6 liters and revolutions to 15,000 rpm. Hybrid technology was also introduced with two electric motors and the minimum weight of the car increased from 642 kg to 691 kg.
This significant increase in weight meant that the brake system had to be redesigned also due to the introduction of the Brake by Wire System. This was accompanied by a further improvement in ventilation and the number of holes on each disc increased to over 1000.
