The comments on the Formula 1 Brazilian Grand Prix according to Brembo

Built in 1940, the circuit has been modified throughout the course of the years, most recently in 1990.

The cars drive counterclockwise and the straights are fairly short: As a consequence, there is only one occasion when braking is used to drop the speed by more than 200 km/h (124 mph).

​ The track is very drivable with frequent changes in direction, but it also has high-speed turns that don't require use of the brakes.

Every lap, the brakes are used barely seven times, but it is not the negative record for the ​World Championship: in Hockenheim are used five times, in Monza and Montreal six.

Overall, during one lap at Interlagos, the brakes are used for almost 12 seconds which comes to 19% of the duration of the race.​ The presence of few hard braking points results in ​the average peak deceleration per lap of 3.6 G.

Even the energy dissipated in braking by each single-seater during the entire GP is contained: 206 kWh.​ From the starting line to the checkered flag, each driver exerts a total load of 40 tons and a half on the brake pedal, which is almost identical to the Russian GP.​
