Brake or tracking problem?!?

Hi guys,
So my car works fine ***128522; when traveling at anything over 50mph under breaking strain the car judders! And I have to grip the wheel quite tight. Now I think it could possibly be the tracking. However at no time during driving or braking does the car pull in either direction. Which leads me to believe that a brake issue might be present?
Do I need to get my tracking checked?
Or is it something slightly more serious?
Thanks in advance

doubt its tracking if its only effected under braking. More than likely your discs are knackered.

If you have wear in your steering system, braking can lead to a tracking change which can cause judder. However, could well be brakes as well.

Won't be tracking alone imho

usually, such things happened when rotors aren't flat.
there's an option to try brake rotor grind machine that works with disc on a hub or find a new discs
