The Hungaroring presents a mid-level of difficulty for the brakes. Turn 1 is the heaviest braking area, while the curve at turn 11 is noteworthy in that the cars use merely 26 metres, the length of one basketball court, to go from 272km/h to 187km/h. From the starting line to the chequered flag, each driver applies a load of 83 tonnes on the pedal, the same weight as 65 Audi TT cars produced in the nearby Gyor plant.
