Brake failure might just be a convenient excuse for Mercedes 60 mln investment. It wouldnt look too good on all sports front pages if they just say what really happened and that is Lewis locked up and lost controll, causing the first crash of 2013. Plain and simple. By the way in these first installation laps its not about setting fastest times, its about getting as many laps as possible to check out reliability more so than performance.
Doesnt look like Merc will be gaining a lot of useful data in Jerez. Yesterday only 15 laps for Nico, today the same for fallen wonderboy, might as well not have bothered so far.
