The various technologies accumulated through our involvement in the F1 challenge, such as weight reduction, high rigidity, cooling capabilities, and so forth, have been introduced into our high performance brake business along with the experience of our individual engineers. In the 2017 season, the regulations for cars were changed signicantly. With these changes, lap time is expected to decrease. Akebono will make every effort to supply the highest performance as requirements on brakes continue to increase. Providing world-beating performance, Akebono has been the Ofcial Supplier of brakes to the McLaren F1 team since 2007.In Formula One, it’s necessary to have brakes that allow the car to go faster. When entering a corner, vehicle speed changes from 300 km/h to 80 km/h in a matter of three seconds. At this time, brake rotor temperatures rise as high as approximately 800°C.To provide minimum possible weight while keeping high rigidity, outstanding cooling capacity, stable performance and high reliability, our meticulous design processes take into account materials selection, their surface treatment, and multiple other aspects.After the 2013 season, Akebono and the McLaren an-nounced a new, extended technology partnership for even closer collaboration. In 2016, Akebono held a commemorative event to mark the 10th anniversary of their partnership.
