The British GP is back after a year's absence. It also skipped 2018 due to flooding. In the past, MotoGP riders used steel discs when it rained, but lately, they have been turning to carbon fiber, thanks to the latest generation of discs suitable for use in the wet.
According to the Brembo technicians who work closely with all the MotoGP World Championship riders, the Silverstone Circuit is a moderately demanding one for brakes. On a scale of one to five, it earned a three on the difficulty index, identical to Misano Adriatico and Valencia.
