Brembo S p A: celebrates 800 Formula 1 Grands Prix marked by innovation and technological supremacy
The loyalty of the Brazilian champion is matched only Michael schumacher, the record holder for a whole series of statistics related to the Brembo braking system. He raced the most Grands Prix (307), won the most (91) and finished on the podium most often (155). His seven world titles were won thanks to Brembo brakes.
In total, the single-seaters equipped with Brembo brakes triumphed in 455 Grands Prix, more than half of the number of races contested (57% to be precise). One hundred and eighty-six of them saw victories for Scuderia Ferrari cars with 21 different drivers, while the remaining 269 were won by other teams with 41 drivers taking the top step of the podium. .
During 800 Grands Prix, there have been races decided by a hair, like the United States GP 2002 where Ferrari achieves a double, with Rubens Barrichello 11 thousandths ahead of Michael Schumacher. The 14 thousandths by which Senna beat Nigel Mansell in the 1986 Spanish GP are also unforgettable. Both of these victories carried the Brembo logo.
Today, reliability has reached levels unimaginable twenty years ago. This has always been one of the hallmarks of Brembo brakes, as shown by the GP with the fewest finishers in F1 history. Victory at the Monaco Grand Prix 1996, finished by just three cars, went to Olivier Panis in a Ligier, which had Brembo brakes.
