Mercedes won't be moving their brake setting switch that caused Lewis Hamilton to go sailing straight on during the final restart in Baku.
Hamilton had stormed into the lead at the final start but, accelerating away from the line, inadvertently hit off the 'magic' brake setting switch that moved his brake bias to the front. This resulted in him being unable to slow down properly and he fell to the back of the pack. Despite the catastrophic error, Mercedes won't be changing the design of their steering wheel.
"We haven't moved it, we've just put a shroud around it just to make sure that you can't, that I can't accidentally touch it in future," Hamilton explained to media, including RacingNews365.
"But that's for the short term, it's obviously the wheels not so easy to change, or to move buttons, was all designed. So we'll look for a longer term solution probably in the future."
"It definitely wasn't the pressure from Max," said Hamilton, jokingly pointing out to media that the Red Bull driver wasn't even in the race at that point.
"And I don't even count it as a mistake. So I don't know what the one before that was, but I don't feel any pressure, I feel pretty relaxed. And you can't always be perfect. A mistake is when you often drive off the track through missing your braking point or hitting the wall but it wasn't, it was kind of an unforced error really.
"Something that we had that was sitting there that could have happened at any point. And, unfortunately, it bit us pretty hard. But we learn from the experience and we move forward."
