After a one-week break, MotoGP starts up again in Australia where it hadn’t been held since 2019 because the country had set strict restrictions to combat the pandemic. According to the Brembo technicians who work closely with all the MotoGP riders, Phillip Island is one of the least demanding circuits on the brakes. On a scale of 1 to 6, it is rated 1 on the difficulty index.
Located on the island of the same name 140 kilometers from Melbourne, this circuit is the nearest to the South Pole in the whole championship with a latitude of 38 degrees. To keep a good initial temperature of the brakes, the MotoGPs often use carbon fiber covers, the same ones used on other circuits when it rains.
