The Scuderia Ferrari Mission Winnow team has extended technical partnership with the brake and other racing component manufacturer Brembo, having been working together since 1975.
The partnership dates back to 1975, when Brembo made its first appearance in Formula 1, supplying the Maranello team with a few cast iron discs. From then on, the relationship has continued, the mutual collaboration leading to the development of carbon discs, hydraulic components for the braking system and numerous innovative elements over the years.
To this day, the partnership focuses heavily on research and development in the design of braking systems specifically for the Maranello team.
Ferrari and Brembo have been partners for more than 45 years after Brembo first entered Formula 1 in 1975 and delivered steel brake discs to the Maranello team for their 312T F1 cars driven by Niki Lauda and Clay Regazzoni.
Lauda convincingly won his first championship title and Ferrari’s third Formula One driver’s title that season, the first after John Surtees in 1964, and Ferrari also won the constructors’ title, their first championship titles with Brembo.
The collaboration between Ferrari and Brembo has continued to this day, and has resulted in the development of carbon discs, hydraulic brake system components and a number of innovative elements over the years.
The partnership focuses on research and development in the design of brake systems designed specifically for the Maranello team and Ferrari and Brembo, like many other manufacturers, are also collaborating on their road car programme.
