All of this is achieved despite slightly smaller dimensions than the carbon-ceramic disc discs currently used on other models in the Mercedes AMG GT series. These use front discs with a diameter of 402 mm and thickness of 39 mm (15.83" and 1.54"), whereas DYATOM™discs measure 400 mm and 38 mm respectively (15.75" and 1.5").
That might seem insignificant, but at these levels, as in Formula 1, where Brembo has been present since way back in 1975, every gram can make a difference. Brake discs are unsprung weight, so they affect the dynamics of the vehicle not only when braking but also accelerating and changing direction.
This is demonstrated by the lap time of 6’43’’61, which could be in place for a long time, just like the DYATOM™ discs, with a life many times longer than that of cast iron ones. In practice, they can last as long as the car they’re fitted to, if not longer.
