Brembo does not get in the way of teams and does not travel to Austrian GP

Next week the first Grand Prix of 2020 is planned in Austria. Brembo will in any case not be physically present there. In consultation with the teams, the Italian brake specialist has decided to work from home during the GP-weekend.

Each team may bring up to eighty people to the Red Bull Ring to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. That number does not exclude external personnel, such as Brembo. Brakes are provided for eight of the total of ten teams in Formula 1.

Proposal not accepted

For Brembo's situation, the idea was devised to assign a technical specialist to each team, instead of one employee moving freely on the paddock as usual. However, this proposal implied that each race stable would then lose one place within the allowed number of eighty men.

Therefore Brembo has now decided to set up a 'remote garage' at the headquarters in Bergamo. It is currently unclear when staff can be sent to the circuits again.
