Like Monaco, much more than Silverstone
The Hungarian track has 11 braking points, for a total time per lap of almost 18 seconds using the brakes, one of the highest in the season. Despite being a kilometer and a half long (0.9 mi), the Silverstone track requires use of the brakes for less than 13 seconds per lap. From start to finish, the brakes are in operation for almost 21 minutes in the Hungarian GP.
The 11 braking sections are distinguished by highly different values, but none of them exceed 140 meters (459 feet) in length. Furthermore, only 3 are at least one hundred meters long (328 feet) and require a load on the pedal of over 90 kg (198 lbs). From the time the lights go out, all the way to the finish line, each driver applies a total load on the brake pedal of 56 tons, one of the highest in the season, along with the Monaco GP.
