The cir­cuit is very hard on brakes. The most chal­leng­ing brak­ing point is at the end of the 1.2km main straight. The cars hit 366km/h and brake for 3.29 sec­onds to slow to 103km/h. The de­cel­er­a­tion here is 4 g – in just 72 me­tres. From start to fin­ish, each driver ap­plies a pedal load of 68 tonnes, equiv­a­lent to the weight of 17,000 crates of avocados.
