Silverstone is one of the easiest on brakes of all the 21 circuits. Only 10% of the lap is spent braking, but an average 4.1 g average deceleration shows that then they brake, they brake hard. From the start to finish, each driver applies a total load on the pedal of 56.5 tonnes, which is four times the weight of Big Ben.
