Brake use during Round 8 of World Superbike
In 7 of the 13 corners of the Portuguese track the Superbike riders use the brakes for a total of over 30 and a half seconds per lap. When MotoGP last ran there, in 2012, the brakes were used for 25 seconds per lap instead. In both cases, half of the braking system's operating time occurs in the first 4 corners.
In 5 of the corners of the track the Superbikes use the brakes to go below 90 km/h (56 mph), but only in 3 of these points before using the braking system the speed exceeds 180 km/h (112 mph). And precisely in correspondence with these 3 corners riders suffer decelerations of at least 1.4 G.
