Suzuka may be dif­fi­cult and chal­leng­ing but it is not a heav­ing-brak­ing cir­cuit. With its wide, open curves, it’s on a par with Spa Fran­cor­champs. Turn one is not the heav­i­est brak­ing point on the track but it does boast the high­est de­cel­er­a­tion as the cars go from 318km/h to 117km/h in only 81 me­tres (which is equiv­a­lent to just over the length of three cars on the Shinkansen train) and 1.08 sec­onds.
