Sauber C33 - front brake detail 28 March 2014

Like most teams', Sauber's front brake assembly has stayed more or less the same as in 2013, but with increased complexity to the machining detail (highlighted) of the calipers to help cut weight. Some calipers now take over 40 hours of CNC machining. Weight saving for 2014 has been imperative as the complete power unit is much heavier than the engine was in 2013.
