Hock­en­heim presents an av­er­age chal­lenge to brakes com­pared to other tracks. The heav­i­est ap­pli­ca­tion is the Spitzkehre cor­ner, where the cars brake from 330km/h down to 70 km/h in just 126 me­tres – for a to­tal brak­ing time of only 1.49 sec­onds. From the start to fin­ish, each driver ap­plies a to­tal force on the brake pedal of 58 tonnes, the equiv­a­lent of the weight of 3,800 crates of beer.
