Master Cylinders (F1 Brake System)

Master Cylinders (F1 Brake System)
Master Cylinders used to generate fluid pressure

Depending on how intricate the machined cooling holes are, an F1 brake disc can cost between $2000 (£1420) and $3000 (£2120). The pads are cheaper, coming in at $780 (£550) each. Calipers would come in at around $5600 (£4000) each, while master cylinders – used to generate fluid pressure – would come in at $5400 (£3800) each and disc bells, which hold the disc to the axle, cost ($2800) £2000 each. The accelerator and brake pedals cost just over £7000. A whole F1 brake system can therefore set you back as much as $66,000 (£55,000).
