Brian Burke, Brembo brakes, on regenerative braking

Brian Burke, is the sales manager to the auto manufacturer (OEM).

Burke took time out to talk to me about:

conventional braking and heat

regenerative braking and kinetic energy

and

FIA, Formula One regenerative braking. Which type of regenerative braking will the race cars use in the F1 series?

Does regenerative braking increase miles per gallon?
