Haas switch to Carbon Industrie brakes

Date published: April 28 2017

Haas have decided to change their brake supplier to Carbon Industrie ahead of the Russian Grand Prix in a bid to solve their long-running issues.

The brakes have become somewhat of an Achilles' heel for the Amercian outfit, who have been hindered by the problem as far back as last season.

Haas used the two-day test in Bahrain as an opportunity to try out an alternative supplier to Brembo and were encouraged by the feedback received from the new brakes.

"We'll continue with what we tried in the Bahrain test and see how it goes," said Magnussen.

"It's always good to try different things, and we felt that there were some positives with the CI brakes, and we'll continue like that. And we can always go back."
