I never realised Hamilton accidentally knocked off the cover for the brake bias switch so the brake bias kept winding itself rearwards causing rear instability.

That issue was present in the second runs where no one was improving anyway, the cause for his poor quali was that he couldn't get good exits in the first run.


Vowles said it was the first run; rectified for the second, but like everyone else, the track was too slow on the second runs for Ham.

Yeah I've just seem that myself, interesting alternate explanation though.

Ok that's interesting, anyway Hamilton himself was blaming the exits for the poor performance so I don't think braking was that much of an issue time-wise.

Yes, he's made the point several times its down to him. As can be seen quite clearly by the onboards.

Maybe but Hamilton's not really one for making excuses, Volwes thought it neccessary to point out that Hamilton had an issue with his brakes.
