F1 braking made one Italian a billionaire.

That is the claim of the financial news agency Bloomberg, revealing that Brembo chief Alberto Bombassei made his fortune by dominating the F1 field, with 7 of the competing 11 teams currently equipped with Brembo carbon brakes.

"One of Brembo's greatest fortunes has been the opportunity to enter the world of racing in 1975, when the company started to supply Ferrari in formula one," 73-year-old Bombassei said.

"This has enabled Brembo over the years to test on the track new technological solutions, which over time have been transferred to road cars and bikes."
