Maverick Vinales' brake failure was the big shocking moment at the Grand Prix of Styria. The Spaniard jumped off his Yamaha at the end of the home straight at a little over 200 km / h and was uninjured. The other Yamaha riders also complained of braking problems, but only at Vinales did the front brake completely fail.

Brembo has revised the braking system for the 2020 MotoGP season. The aluminum brake caliper is new. This was tested last year in Valencia and last February in Sepang. The design has been revised.

When Miller ran wide (as often happens when fast-starting riders arrive hot into One) Marc Márquez passed for second. By turn 4 Viñales and Márquez were even, and two corners later, Márquez’s intended plan looked on track. Márquez had suffered “a small crash” in practice and Quartararo had set pole. Then Márquez came back to show tremendous pace in Sunday morning warm-up.

On the one hand, the brake caliper and consequently the entire brake system are cooled better. At the same time, the amount of brake fluid can be reduced, which improves constancy and reduces the sponginess of the brake lever.

Brembo has strongly recommended the new system

Overall, Brembo assumes that the braking effect will be around ten percent better than last year. So far, the teams have been free to put together the configuration of their braking system themselves (with the exception of Motegi).

The use of the new version was recommended because it offers the best braking performance. During the first race weekend in Spielberg, some drivers - especially Yamaha - had problems with the brakes.

Maverick Vinales says the brake failure which forced him to jump off his Yamaha at 130mph in the Styrian Grand Prix was something he 'never had during my MotoGP career'. Though Red Bull Ring is notorious for its hard braking zones, Vinales doesn't feel this was the main cause of his failure .

According to information from 'Motorsport-Total.com', Brembo sent an email before the second weekend in Austria to all teams. In this message, all teams were clearly advised to use the new braking system, otherwise the situation would be at its limit.

The Italian company also pointed out that you do not take any responsibility if you ignore this clear recommendation and use different / older material.

Even Joan Mir does not have a new brake system

As it turned out in retrospect, Vinales was the only Yamaha rider who did not follow this recommendation. His teammates Valentino Rossi, Fabio Quartararo and Franco Morbidelli used the new system after the problems in Spielberg 1.

In addition to Vinales, there was another driver in the field who did not drive with the new braking system. That was Joan Mir. "I drove with the brakes as usual because I had no problems at all," says the Suzuki driver.

"Yamaha had problems with the brakes on both weekends. I heard that Maverick had problems from the fourth lap onwards. That is very irresponsible because it put the other riders at risk," says Mir. "The fact that he had a brake defect was not very responsible on his part."

All MotoGP teams use Brembo brakes, although this is not required. According to the regulations, there is no standard supplier for the brakes. Other brake specialists could theoretically work with MotoGP teams. Brembo has won all premier class races since 1995.

Vinales got off the track in the afternoon practice and hit the road again on the straight after Turn 6. Joan Mir was on the straight and, as a precaution, took off the gas when he saw Vinales. Vinales signaled to me that he was not very enthusiastic about his maneuver.
