Brakes go long

brakes go long :

Brakes go long’ is a reference to brake fade, where the brakes have overheated and lost their effectiveness, and the driver has to push the brake pedal further (longer) than normal to slow the car. 

F1 brakes are made of carbon fibre and don’t work until they are 400 C and they operate up to 1000 C.
