It’s eighty years old but doesn’t show its age. This year the Monaco GP celebrates its 80th GP even if the first one was held back in 1929. According to Brembo technicians, the Monaco Circuit is classified as a track with a mediumlevel of difficulty for brakes. On a scale of 1 to 5, it is rated 3 on the difficulty index, exactly the same as the tracks where the last two races were held.
The circuit, that winds its way through the streets of the Principality, stands out for its high aerodynamic load and the high percentage of braking time. What is more, various sections of the track have been reasphalted over the last few weeks including the Louis 11 Tunnel with a total 15,000 square meters of asphalt being used. This could increase the temperatures of the calipers and the brake fluid since there is a greater transfer of braking force onto the ground.
