The description of the Red Bull Ring circuit

At first glance the layout of the Red Bull Ring appears very simple but in reality it is a very difficult and demanding track.
The Spielberg circuit is very technical with long straights that end in very slow corners; you need to make long braking sections which cause the brake temperatures to skyrocket and it is not easy to have constant braking throughout the race.

Furthermore, it is not easy to find an ideal set-up because you need very hard forks to deal with strong decelerations while the final part of the track is very smooth with fast corners that require a different set-up. A set-up that is also good for the last corners is important because they are the ones where you can play for victory on the last lap.
Another element to take into consideration on this track is that almost all the corners are right-handed, which means very high temperatures and wear on the right-hand side of the tyres. The left side, on the other hand, remains almost new but is never at the ideal temperature. There MotoE, due to its weight, it pushes a lot on the tires and when you take left-hand bends you feel like a completely different bike than you feel on right-hand bends.
