The Red Hot Burn That Is Testing F1 Brakes

Video: The red hot burn that is testing F1 brakes

Video: Hot, hot, hot. That's what happens when something -- like say, the wheel of an F1 car -- is spinning so impossibly fast and then gets immediately clamped down by the brakes. It glows and pulsates a wonderful orange that looks like molten steel. This footage from Brembo testing their brakes shows how it all happens.
