Cripes! Much respect “You need to brake super-hard to generate the heat in the discs and also at the same time deform the tyre enough to generate the heat in it for the corner entry. “But if you carry the brakes into the turn, the tyre folds and you get understeer - or even crash like I did - let off too early and you get chatter, if you get it just right it grips and carries you round the corner,” he added. “We're talking fractions of a second difference in timing and 0.5-2bar difference in brake pressure so as you can imagine getting it right every corner of every lap will take time.”
