After the thrilling debut of the Formula 1 World Championship, marked by 8 single-seaters with Brembo brakes in the points zone, the championship will deliver an encore this weekend at the Red Bull Ring.
According to Brembo technicians, the Red Bull Ring is one of those tracks with a medium level of difficulty for brakes. This track, on the other hand, is highly demanding for MotoGP races: competitors on two wheels use the brakes for 27 seconds each lap, which is 170 per cent more than in Formula 1.
The Brake by Wire Brembo for Formula 1
Since 2014, when Brake-by-Wire was introduced in Formula 1, Brembo redesigned the rear part of its braking systems to identify solutions for the best cohabitation between brakes and energy recovery systems.
Brembo produces various Brake-by-Wire components for the teams: actuators for some, valves and rigidity simulators for others. Continuous research is carried out on the maximum miniaturization of Brake-by-Wire elements. The TTL (time to lock) is 100 milliseconds, three times quicker than traditional solutions.
