Mercedes and Brembo have issued a joint statement in response to Lewis Hamilton's crash during Q1 in Germany.

It reads:

"Following the accident experienced by Lewis Hamilton last Saturday at Hockenheim, Brembo and Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 Team have been working hand in hand to analyse and identify the causes of the failure.

There is currently no clear evidence of a single cause of failure and our continuing rigorous analysis will take into account multiple factors which could have contributed to the incident.

The results of this technical analysis will be communicated as soon as they are available.

Formula One is a domain of advanced development where technologies are pushed to their limits and in which strong partnerships are crucially important.

Brembo and Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 Team remain committed to a close working relationship in the future."

"As much as I would like to look the other way. Didn't Mercedes change brake discs from Brembo to Carbon Industries? This act was a breech of the regulations. The brake discs were not "like for like" as Steve Matchett stated. How can those discs be exactly the same spec? Therefore HAM must be disqualified from the German GP. "
