Unlike the two races held in 2020 and 2021, this year there will be no trial run at the Red Bull Ring because it is hosting just one GP. According to the Brembo technicians who work closely with all the MotoGP World Championship riders, the Austrian track is an extremely demanding circuit for brakes. On a scale of 1 to 6, it is rated 6 on the difficulty index.
To improve safety, the speed of the MotoGPs on Corner 2 has been reduced by introducing a chicane, work which began last November. The riders have to move from right to left which puts their skill to the test and offers new possibilities for overtaking making the GP even more demanding on the brakes because of the 4 hard braking sections in a row.
