Ultra quick Brembo pit stop​

Brembo's job in F.1 does not end with the supply 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 operational life of a Brembo Formula 1 caliper does not exceed 10,000 km (6,214 miles), but at the end of each GP race and after a test session, the caliper returns to the factory. Specialized workers disassemble it and replace the parts that are subject to wear such as, for example, the rubber parts, with new components - all within a few days. On average, each team uses 10-10-15 sets of calipers, 150-200 discs and up to 600 pads. ​
