I remember reading about ten years ago about a brake system Williams were testing, where if you tapped on the brakes lightly first and then put them on fully, you would actually be able to brake later overall. Anyone knows what I’m on about and what happened to it?
I think it was just a difference between the AP brakes (that I think Williams was running at the time) and the Brembo’s everyone else was running. It was why in that year a few cars ploughed into the back of the Williams. It wasn’t a specific design but to do with the way the brakes got up to temperature which required the driver to effectively pump the brake first.
