Mike Elliott, Technology Director of AMG-Mercedes Petronas F1, talks us through the braking systems of the Championship-winning Mercedes F1 car. The temperatures and the g-forces involved are mind-blowing; and, until the new F1 regs arrive (probably now in 2022), the brake suppliers in F1 will remain in fierce competition. Mercedes generally use Brembo calipers with Carbone Industrie discs but there’s always a lot of fine-tuning over a race weekend. With thanks to AMG-Mercedes Petronas Motorsport.
