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).
