After a four-week break, the Formula 1 World Championship starts up again in Belgium for the first of three GPs held over 3 different weekends. According to Brembo technicians, the Spa-Francorchamps Circuit is a demanding circuit for brakes. On a scale of 1 to 5, it is rated 4 on the difficulty index.
People rate it as the most complete track in Formula 1 because in just over 7 kilometers (4.35 miles) it has corners and straights of all shapes and lengths. One of its distinctive features is the three braking sections of at least 2.5 seconds, something not shared by any other track on the calendar.
