Two 5-seconds braking sections, the other five seconds
Only at turns two, five and eight of the Austrian track do F1 drivers not need to use the brakes. On average, over an entire lap, the braking system is active for 10-and-a bit seconds. Only Imola has recorded a lower value, despite having eight braking sections compared to seven at the Red Bull Ring.
The difference between the two tracks is due to the braking sections in turns three and four, which require more than two and a half seconds, while on the Italian track, even the most demanding braking does not take more than 1.9 seconds. From the start to the checkered flag, drivers deploy the brakes in Austria for 11:56 minutes, or 16% of the race.
