Five corners almost like the other 10
On the first 5 turns of the Algarve International Circuit, the brakes are in use for a total of 13.5 seconds whereas on the remaining 10 turns, they are used for 18.7 seconds: in the first case, the average is almost 3 seconds and in the other, it does not even approach 2 seconds.
On many of these corners, you can see the Brembo and Sensify LED banners and screens specially installed for the occasion, from the bridge over the starting line and the pit wall to the last corner.
From the starting line to the checkered flag, each driver exerts a total load of just over 800 kg (0.88 t) on the brake lever. The brake system is used in total for exactly one third of the entire Grand Prix. Of all the races in the Iberian Peninsula, only the Circuit Ricardo Tormo has a higher percentage.
