Braking system


Formula 1 car must have one braking system which operates through a single brake pedal. However, the system must consist of two hydraulic circuits – one for the front and one for the rear wheels. If one of the hydraulic circuits fails, the other must remain operational.

Antilock braking systems (ABS) are not allowed – brake pressure must be controlled by the driver’s physical input on brake pedal. The only exception is the electronic rear brake control system  introduced in 2014. to compensate for the extra power that the energy recovery system generates on the braking.

Brake ducts size is strictly controlled, and team change their size and shape to adapt to the requirements of the track and the weather conditions. The use od liquid to cool the brakes is not allowed.
