13 hard brak­ing points com­bined with high am­bi­ent tem­per­a­tures make this a tough cir­cuit on brakes. Big­gest brak­ing ef­fort is at Curve 8, where cars ar­rive at 340km/h and brake for 1.64s to re­duce their speed to 64 km/h. From start to che­quered flag, each driver ap­plies a to­tal load of 69 tonnes on the pedal, which is equiv­a­lent to the to­tal weight of about 115 camels.
