Formula 1 has truly ferocious brakes. With the MGUK added to the mix, sharing part of the braking load, this gives F1 some of the most technologically advanced brakes in the world. How do they work so well? What materials are involved? And how to they go wrong? ------------------ Please do support these videos on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/chainbearf1 Twitter: http://twitter.com/chainbearf1 Writing / Illustration / Animation / Editing / Narration: Stuart Taylor http://www.chainbear.me sharecode: chainbearsharef1


oinka720 : Wow technology has progressed quickly. I can remember in the early years of f1 when the brake discs were pinched by real live clams. So when you wanted to slow the car you would yell at the clam and he would use his shell to pinch the disc. We called it "clamming on the brakes". Then they improved it so that instead of yelling at the clam, you would push a lever that struck a flint and lit a fire under him. We called that "brake by fire". And later on came the invention of having aquatic birds in there to blow air on the clams and those were "cooling ducks". Goggles Pizano won 11 races that year. Those were the days...
