As in 2020, there will be 2 World Championship GP races in a row at the Red Bull Ring once again this year. The same thing happened back in the spring, at the Losail International Circuit, but in that case the temperature was similar on both days. In Austria on the other hand, the weather can change enormously, with a difference of up to 20°C (68°F) in track temperature from one week to the next.
According to the Brembo technicians who work closely with all the MotoGP World Championship riders, the Austrian track is an extremely demanding circuit for the brakes. On a difficulty index scale of 1 to 5, it earns a 5 - a value only equaled this year by the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
