The Austin track is rated as mid-level for de­mand on brakes. It’s not a high-speed track, but few of its 20 cor­ners re­quire heavy brak­ing. From the start line to the che­quered flag, each driver ap­plies a to­tal load of nearly 78 tonnes on the pedal, which is the same weight as 150 Texas Hold’em ta­bles with 6 play­ers each (and the card dealer).
