Ferrari F150o – Front brakes

F150o front brake ducts are inclined downwards to receive air coming under the front wing’s flaps . Additionally the inlet is divided into two openings, one large to feed the brake disc with fresh air and another one smaller to cool down the rest brake components (pads) . Other teams , for instance Red Bull and Sauber , prefer to run twin ducts instead of one . The winglet behind the duct helps to reduce turbulence inside the wheel profile.Lastly all the braking components are enclosed inside a carbon ring, an idea pioneered by Ferrari back in 2001 .
