There are occasions in which the pilots are really happy with them and we then put in another game and appears discontent, we lose time. Not only changing the brakes, but by the trust of the pilots”.

What we did last year, but could not reach a conclusion. We need to try them this year because we’re late with the signature, and we have to build new brakes because they are wider. We will test them, but we don’t know exactly when or in what career he will have”.
