Do You Know How They Test The Brakes For F1 Cars?!?

Do you know what it takes to be able to stop a vehicle that goes as fast as an f1 race car? Probably not, as not many of us have actually had the chance to work on one or drive one. Let’s just put it this way, when it comes to the safety of their drivers, they put the Brakes through the ultimate test.

When metal and friction come together it usually doesn’t end well. Especially if the metal is over heated. If you’ve ever seen a piece of smoldering metal, you know that it’s not a pretty sight. Now imagine your Brakes melting down completely while driving. Yeah that’s also not a pretty sight. If it wasn’t for the testing that they do on these Brakes, who knows what could happen on the track!!!
