Braking in the Russian F1 GP

Ultra-quick Brembo pit stop​​


Brembo's job in F1 does not end with delivery of the various components. During the GP weekends, Brembo engineers provide the teams with assistance, usually on the track, but due to the Covid-19 pandemic, they often work from the Remote Garage, located in Curno. The engineers follow the sessions live and analyze the data.

The useful life of a Brembo Formula 1 caliper does not exceed 10,000 km (6,214 mi), but after every race and test session, the caliper goes back to the factory. Specialized workers disassemble it and replace the parts subject to wear, such as, for example, the rubber parts, with new components. All in just a few days. On average, each team uses 10-15 sets of calipers, 150-200 discs and up to 600 pads. ​
