Red Bull RB8 - new brake discs and ducts 23 September 2012

Singapore is one of the toughest races on the calendar for brakes. Red Bull and Ferrari are using new discs at Marina Bay, which they previously tested at Spa and Monza. Featuring more than 1000 holes (five holes per row), the new discs are supplied by Brembo. Made from a new material, CER, they lose only 1mm of thickness by the end of the race in comparison to the 4mm worn away on the older CCR discs. Red Bull also used new front brake ducts in Singapore to aid cooling.
