The second race in a row in North America and the seventh on the Mexico City circuit named after the Rodriguez brothers and renovated in 2015. According to Brembo technicians, the Mexican track is a very demanding circuit for brakes.
On a scale of 1 to 5, it is rated 4 on the difficulty index, higher than the US world championship circuits but the same as the Canadian track in Montreal. Unlike the other components, the track’s record height above sea level does not affect the braking system itself but the very high top speeds are very taxing. The biggest difficulty lies with the low air density which has a negative effect on the cooling of the discs, pads and calipers as well as the radiators and engines.
