After a two-year absence because of the lockdown in the country due to the pandemic, Formula 1 heads back to Australia. For the twenty-fifth time, races will be held at the Albert Park circuit, but this had only happened one other time during the month of April - in 2006. According to Brembo engineers, it is one of those tracks with a medium level of difficulty for brakes.
Since it is usually used for daily traffic, on Friday the track is slippery but, session by session, the asphalt is increasingly rubberized, also improving braking performance. This also translates into greater pad and disc wear, as they reach extremely high temperatures due to the increase in grip.
