For the first time, the Monaco GP is held on three days in a row, breaking the tradition of the first free practice sessions on Thursday and a day of rest of Friday. According to Brembo technicians, the Monaco Circuit falls into the category of tracks that present an average challenge for the brakes. On a difficulty index scale of 1 to 5, it earned a 3, exactly the same as the tracks of the last four races.
The circuit, that winds its way through the streets of the Principality, stands out for its high aerodynamic load and the considerable percentage of braking time. On top of that, in March a large portion of the track was resurfaced to ensure grip in line with the other circuits. This could increase the caliper and brake fluid temperatures, since there is a greater transfer of braking force onto the ground.
