According to Brembo technicians, the Enzo e Dino Ferrari circuit falls into the category of those tracks with medium difficulty for the brakes. On a scale of 1 to 5, it earns itself a difficulty rating of 3, the same as the Mugello Raceway but one point less than the Monza circuit.
There hasn’t been F1 racing on this circuit since 2006, when Michael Schumacher won out with Ferrari. With 22 turns and a really short home straight (358 m/392 yds), the circuit is very technical and calls for some really heavy engine braking of all kinds. It's not a coincidence that Enzo Ferrari called the circuit that bears his and his son Dino’s names a "little Nürburgring".
You don’t always need the most powerful brakes
The use of the most powerful Brembo Formula 1 braking systems doesn't always produce positive results, because in certain environmental conditions the system might be oversized for the single-seater: an unbridled braking force would make it hard to reach the minimum operating temperature.
At excessively low operating temperatures, the carbon used to make F1 discs and pads doesn't guarantee correct friction generation and risks becoming glazed, compromising braking performance. Furthermore, the mechanical action of the pads on cold discs can lead to higher wear.
