The Ford Chicanes also have to be counted among the most stressful braking sections for the braking systems. These curves require the LMP1 cars to use their brakes for the most time, a good 5.5 seconds, and over the longest braking space, as much as 269.4 metres. The load on the pedal amounts to 88 kg and the deceleration is 2.07 g. On the contrary, the braking space for the LM GTE Pro cars is more limited with respect to the prototypes because they don't come into the turns as fast: only 183 metres are needed because they are going 257 km/h at the beginning of the turns and 97 km/h when they come out.
The most relevant curve that presents a mid-level difficulty on the brakes is the Mulsanne. The LMP1 cars undergo a drop in velocity of almost 220 km/h, the highest on the track, going from 321 km/h to 86 km/h. The average deceleration is 3.01 g and they brake for 188 metres. The LM GTE Pro cars go from 281 km/h to 80 km/h in 310 metres. The braking section at the Maison Blanche requires a modest use of the brakes. The LMP1 cars go from 264 km/h to 221 km/h in 1.5 seconds, while the LM GTE Pro cars drop from 217 km/h to 193 km/h in 2 seconds. While they may seem moderate, both categories still surpass 100 metres in length: 105.5 metres for the LMP1 cars and 107 metres for the LM GTE Pro cars.
