Less than one month after the famous 24 Hours which got the World Endurance Championship off to a start, the Bugatti Circuit hosts the French GP. According to the Brembo technicians who work closely with all the MotoGP World Championship riders, this track is one of the most highly demanding circuits for brakes.
On a scale of 1 to 6, it is rated 4 on the difficulty index, the highest rating in this first part of the championship together with Jerez. To avoid the risk of the discs exceeding an ideal temperature, many riders use High Mass discs which have a high braking band. This material is now often used when it rains too thanks to special covers.
