For the ninth time running, the Formula 1 world championship has come to a close in the Arab Emirates. Last year the Yas Marina Circuit was given a new layout, with 5 corners less than the previous version and that, together with the shorter track, led to 12 second faster lap times in the qualifying round.
According to Brembo technicians, the Yas Marina Circuit is one of the most demanding on the brakes. On a scale of 1 to 5, it is rated 4 on the difficulty index mainly due to the problem with thermal discharge both in the second and the last third of the Abu Dhabi track.
