In Formula 1 all of the 17 Grand Prix races in the current season have been won by cars equipped with Brembo components.

Starting from 1978 to 2001, it’s possible to count the first 185 GPs won by bikes with Brembo brakes in the 500 class. However, the winning series started in 1995.

2020 was also a winning year in electric motorsport. It was the second consecutive season for Brembo as the exclusive supplier of the FIA Formula E championship. All 24 electric single-seaters of the new Gen2 car were equipped with its brakes through constructor Spark Racing Technology.

In addition to the already mentioned Formula 1, Formula E, MotoGP, Moto2, Moto3, MotoE and WSBK championships, it’s important to mention also GT, NASCAR, WRC, WTCR, IndyCar, Enduro, MX2, EWC, IMSA, DTM, Formula 2, Formula 3 and many others for a total number of over 500 world titles won from the 70s to the present in the various categories.
