The increase of hybridisation and electrification in motorsport has resulted in a dramatic evolution in the braking systems of a racing car over the past few years.
Braking has always been an important part of racing, and getting it right can often be the difference between success and failure, but its role has changed with the introduction of hybrid systems from purely slowing a car to regenerating energy.
In today's Autosport Podcast episode in conjuction with AVL RACING, Grand Prix editor Alex Kalinauckas and technical editor Jake Boxall-Legge are joined by AVL RACING's Michael Peinsitt and Martin Monschein to discuss their roles in developing brake systems across motorsport and how modern technology can influence their design.
