A Formula One car is one of the only race cars in the world that can decelerate nearly as fast as it accelerates. You might be used to that fact but when you really stop and think about it, being able to scrub off so much speed in such a short a mount of time and short distances is nothing short of amazing as well as important. Many passes during a race are decided by who has better brakes going into a corner. To pull off such a feat F1 cars need incredibly advanced stopping systems. Usually, F1 teams are pretty hush-hush about how any of their internal systems work but in a rare moment of transparency Brembo and Ferrari created this awesome virtual fly through video that highlights each component of the Ferrari F2012 braking system! I must say, after watching the video I am pretty impressed at how simple yet effective Brembo’s set up really is. You definitely want to check this out!
