     Top speed is significantly  increased in 2011 due to KERS and DRS resulting in greater braking power as well . Canada is very tough on brakes and 2011 race was even more crucial bringing brake components to the limit . Traditionally teams enlarge their brake ducts in Montreal to ensure cooling and reliability .
