haas-vf-16-ferrari-rear-brakes-foto-f1fanatic-xpb

Formula 1 car must have┬áone┬ábraking system which operates through┬áa single┬ábrake 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┬á(ABS) are not allowed – brake pressure must┬ábe controlled by┬áthe driver’s physical input on brake pedal. The only exception is the electronic rear brake control system ┬áintroduced in 2014. to compensate for the extra power that the energy recovery┬ásystem┬ágenerates on the braking.
