Rest your drink on a race-used MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One™ Team Brake Disc!
This MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS carbon brake disc is displayed within a hand-crafted solid oak table top for a jaw-dropping addition to your living room!
The oak table top is cut from a piece of solid oak, and perfectly shaped to fit the carbon brake disc. Polished with refined Danish oil and inset with the official Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport plaque, the oak table top is fitted with a toughened glass table top to protect the original racing heritage.
With their curvaceous form, the infinity legs are hand fabricated from mild steel – powder coated with a matte black finish.
Part of the MGP-W02 car as driven by Michael Schumacher and Nico Rosberg in the F1 Drivers’ World Championship, each brake disc is a genuine piece of the Silver Arrows’ racing heritage.
Brake discs reach temperatures of 1000 degrees Celsius in a single braking zone and each race presents different challenges for the brakes – from full throttle into heavy braking zones at the Canadian GP, to the undulations of height at the Austrian GP. They take up to 6 months to produce, in a careful process of compressing and baking the carbon fibre and they weigh just over 1kg (in contrast to the average 15kg of a standard sports car cast iron brake disc)!
The table measures 59cmH x 33cm diameter and will be delivered complete with the team's certificate of authenticity.
