I was told to dab the brakes coming through Graham Hill to unbalance the car...how does that work and whats the thinking behind that?

A dab of the brakes would shift weight towards the front of the car leading to a better turn in.

As you come past the entrance/exit you'll be taking the first left/right and accelerating and you keep to the right of the track up to the Graham Hill corners. With the weight on the back of the car due to the acceleration and mid-engine compounding this you'll need some extra grip on the fronts, the dab is just to get the nose into the corner quicker.

you could also dab with the left foot, this wouldn't upset the car as much.

Here for a good time, not a long time
