    Hello Le Man,

    If anyone can shed light on this one it's you.
    Out of interest I have always wondered about the F1 handbrake and always assumed it was of the old style Fly off variety as the handle drops back down after it is applied.
    (Similar to the old Triumph GT6 I used to have in my youth)
    however I am now thinking that it is more likely to be similar to the system used in most car today where the lever applies the brake by ratchet mechanism then is released by a solenoid type of actuator.
    Any ideas or even in side information on this?
    Cheers, Geoff
