According to Brembo technicians, the Mugello Circuit is one of those tracks with a medium level of difficulty for brakes. On a scale of 1 to 5, it earned a 3 on the difficulty index, the lowest of the GPs held in the last few weeks. The GP is also Ferrari's 1000th appearance in Formula 1 with at least one Brembo brake component used for 777 of these appearances.
Formula 1 has never raced here but Ferrari, who has owned the circuit since 1988, carried out tests at the beginning of July with 2018 single-seaters. MotoGP, on the other hand, first raced on the Mugello circuit in 1976 and has been using it on a regular basis since 1991. It was at Mugello in 2008 that Valentino Rossi test drove the F2008: two Italian myths, brought together by Brembo, present on all the motorcycles he has used in the World Championships.
