F1 should evaluate more road-relevant brakes, says supplier Brembo

Formula 1 could switch to carbon-ceramic brakes in the future if it needs to become more road relevant, suggests supplier Brembo.
“The future of braking systems need not be with carbon-carbon discs,” Brembo’s performance group CEO Mario Almondo told Autosport.
Mario Almondo: “Brembo sees the application of material that is more applicable to everyday road cars – even high-performance ones.”
Almondo said Brembo has applied to become the F1 supplier for both elements, but added the company would prefer for competition to remain among brake suppliers.
“Brembo prefers competition to show on the field that we are better than our competitors,” added Almondo.
