With the car's downforce there are only 7 corners that drivers need to slow down and drive through. Even Austria had more actual corners and that's a really short track.
Yeah, I think they will have to slow down for Turns 1,3,5,7,8,10 & 13. So I make that 7 slow down moments also.
Obviously Bahrain Outter will be less than this. Also, I have Monza as 6. I dont think in qualy the drivers would use the brake pedal at the second part of the Retifillio. Same for the Della Roggia. So I would say the brake pedal is used Once at Retifillio, Once at Della Roggia, 2 Times in the Lesmo's, Once at Ascari and once at Parabolica.
Bahrain Outter - 4
Monza - 6
Austria - 7
Portimao - 7
Interlagos - 7 (although no on calendar)
The brake pedal is only used once but you can't floor it through the apex of the second turn in any of the 3 chicanes, you must drive, ie control the throttle and steering, only after clearing the apex can you floor it, which is why I count it as an actual turn.
The Essess in Silverstone I consider 3 consecutive corners. First one is flat, speed adjustment for the second, speed adjustment for the third, line up the exit then floor it.
By this critera, there are 7 corners in Algarve Circuit, however I count turn 4 as a driving moment but not turn 7 which is easy flat and braking in an F1 car happens after the corner.
I have a hard time believing any F1 car with the power they have will take turn 4 flat, there will be a tiny lift unless the track resurface has smoothed the transition. Would also be a shame if the bump on the outside of turn 12 has been removed. Also the bump after turn 1 although harsh gave the turn more character because it could spit you out of the track if you weren't careful.
