Ferrari f150 front brake
Ferrari F150 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.
