Considering the cause stated by Merc (failure of the brakeline to the right read caliper), there is a strong probability that the two failures are related. The flames from the first failure were impacting exactly were the brakeline is situated. I would suggest that under pressure to get the car ready for today, damage to the brakeline was not recognised while repairs were being made.
