The demand on the brakes during the GP
Out of the 18 corners on the circuit, there are 10 braking sections.
On seven of these, the brakes are used for more than three seconds.
On one full lap, the MotoGP riders apply their brakes for 34 seconds, which totals 11 minutes over the course of the entire race.
In other words, each bike travels a total of 32 km with the braking system at full throttle.
Summing up all of the force applied by a rider on the Brembo brake lever from the starting line to the checkered flag, the result comes in at more than 969 kg, which, practically speaking, comes to a force of 25 kg for every minute of the race.
The average peak deceleration of the MotoGP bikes on this track is 1.11 G, a value that would be higher without the three corners where the deceleration measures just 0.6 - 0.7 G. In spite of this, the average deceleration of the MotoGP bikes at the British GP is higher than the 0.1 G of a Tesla Model X.
