Just like the USA and Mexico, Brazil is also returning to World Formula One after a year’s absence. According to Brembo technicians, the Autódromo José Carlos Pace is classified as one of those tracks with a medium level of difficulty for brakes. On a scale of 1 to 5, it is rated 3 on the difficulty index, exactly the same score as Austin.
The straight sections are all fairly short: consequently, drivers only have to drop their speed by more than 180 km/h on one occasion. The track has to be driven very carefully, with frequent changes in direction, but it also has high-speed turns where the brakes are not needed.
