Grosjean gives new Brembo brakes two thumbs up


Romain Grosjean was happy with the updated Brembo brakes used by the Haas F1 Team in last weekend's Bahrain Grand Prix.

The Frenchman has been complaining since last summer about the lack of consistency of his brakes, a state of affairs which has led not only to several off-track excursions but also to a weakening of his confidence.

Haas has been working with Brembo to solve the issues but has also scheduled a test of Carbone Industrie's product at this week's in-season test in Bahrain.

"We had an update from Brembo and it worked much better than it was before," said Grosjean

"It was clearly a big step. It took quite a while to get the update. We're going to try something different and see how it goes."

The improvement of Brembo's update notwithstanding, Grosjean said he was still impatient to try out Carbone's product which the Frenchman briefly sampled at last year's Brazilian Grand Prix.

"I'm looking forward to getting the other brand because last year it changed a lot the end of the braking and the feeling going into the corners," he said.

"Let's see if we still have a lot of improvement. I think the delay will be less big. The new update worked pretty well but as I say, I'm looking forward to trying that.

"There is quite a lot on the menu to see where we can improve the car."
