In total, around 22 tons of steel has gone into producing the two hub bearings. Each bearing has an outside diameter of 3,200mm, an inner ring bore of 2,600mm and a ring width of 630mm. Each bearing incorporates 118 rollers, each of these weighing around 20kg. During this process, team members at Schaeffler had to continuously break new ground, improvise and coordinate time schedules. The bearing rings were forged in Italy.

Finally, the bearings were manufactured and assembled by FAG's large bearing specialists in Wuppertal.
