The new Baku circuit was a step into the unknown on many levels but braking wise it fell into the category of ‘medium’. Of the 12 braking zones, nine are considered medium and three light - none are rated as heavy. The energy dissipated during braking by each car throughout the entire grand prix is 139kWh, the equivalent of the amount of electricity consumed during the entire race by about 290 residents of Azerbaijan.
