What steps did you take?
“When we could not increase the disc's diameter because of the limits imposed by Dorna and IRTA, we increased the friction surface of the pad to facilitate heat dissipation. But we then reached a point when that was not enough either…”.
Did you raise a safety concern with the MotoGP organisers?
“Dorna and IRTA were very sensitive to the problem since we were very close to the material's performance/safety limit and from 2014 onwards, we have been allowed to use a larger disc with a 340 mm diameter that has the same thickness to avoid having to change the calipers as well. In addition to safety and performance, they also considered costs to avoid an escalation in price”.
