@ the obvious Lewis hater above, not going to bother putting the **** you use as a name.
I think you'll find Chilton was first in the barriers. If you're so against Hamilton don't read any article that relates to him

Dan, yesterday i was thumbed down for saying that Rosberg should drive today. Wasnt i proven right ? I suspect Rosberg would still be driving and collecting crucial data. Hamilton produced one fast lap and then put it in the barrier. Chilton had REAL car failure.
Hamilton has a well documented history of locking up more than any other top driver and having gone on record yesterday how complicated Mercs 6 options for brake set up are and add Hamiltons eagerness to impress his new paymasters. Well you just have to put one and one together i am afraid. If you prefer to believe what Merc feeds you via PR department, thats your choice.

@Jenson teamleader?

Did you forget to take you medicine today? Absolute rubbish comment you made.

Mercedes on Twitter: "Update from Jerez... we have traced the problem to the hydraulic brake line connecting to the right-rear caliper.

Believe me, Merc is more concerned about preserving Hamiltons image, or whats left of it. He is what is giving them more publicity in emerging markets and thats what they want out of Formula 1. A brake failure on a F1 car in testing has no negative effect on your image as a car manufactuer at all. As long as Merc can pretend they have the best driver they are happy and they are not willing to displease him by making any noise about his mistakes so soon !
