Monza may demand engine power, but with all that speed comes a huge amount of pressure on the brakes. In this week's episode of Tech Talk, Craig Scarborough talks stopping power with Brembo's Andrea Algeri.

Brembo have supplied brakes to multiple Formula 1 championship-winning teams including Ferrari in the 1970s and 2000s, McLaren-Honda, Red Bull and most recently Mercedes.

To find out, watch the video in the player above to learn about the incredible engineering that goes into F1 brake systems – and catch the full episode on F1 TV.
