Richard Russell recently took part in Mercedes-Benz Driving Academy's Mastering Performance course at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.

Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks?
For decades I have taught and been taught that on a race track you do your braking in a straight line and get it finished before you deal with the corner.
Not so, says Danny Kok, chief instructor at the Mercedes-Benz Driving Academy in Canada.
Kok and the Mercedes program teach the delicate art of transitioning from the brake to the throttle pedals while cornering.
Braking in a straight line may be best for beginners and others with less experience on a track, but ultimately the faster method is to use that transition time to re-distribute the weight among the four contact patches as smoothly as possible.
