Blast it - #TheF1Effect - Simulation

Founded in 1963 by New Zealander Bruce McLaren, the team won its first Grand Prix at the 1968 Belgian Grand Prix, but their greatest initial success was in Can-Am, where they dominated from 1967 to 1971.

Of all the technology fitted to a Formula 1 car, the performance of the brakes is perhaps the most impressive: each disc features more than 700 individually drilled cooling holes, yet still reaches temperatures of up to 1200°C – hot enough to melt silver – during the lap.

It’s little surprise that they’re so powerful – drivers push the brake pedal with a force equivalent to more than twice their body weight, triggering deceleration forces of 5g. The brakes will bring a 200mph Formula 1 car to a dead halt in less than five seconds. Impressive.
