Slapped with a ten second penalty for conducting his pre-race practice starts in the improper location, an action the stewards believed gave the Mercedes driver a sporting advantage, Hamilton initially also had two penalty points added to his licence.
The points, which were later rescinded after team representatives met with the stewards, briefly took Hamilton to a total of 10; a race ban being the penalty for accruing 12 across a rolling 12 month period.
"Lewis has had some bad luck in the last few races, with the penalties in Monza and now Sochi," wrote Brawn in his Formula1.com column.
"Personally, I would go away, lick my wounds and think about how I could prevent such incidences again in the future.
"That’s what I know the team will be doing. I know many of the people, from my time at the team, and they will recognise they have made some mistakes.
"Bad luck and mistakes happen, it’s how you respond that matters. It’s easy to think the world is against you, but there is nearly always something you could have done differently and you can learn from."
On the other side of the Mercedes garage, the mood was far more positive, as Valtteri Bottas celebrated a first win in nine race.
The Finn has taken a fair amount of flack while racing alongside Hamilton, and Brawn commented Bottas appears to feed off such comments.
"It was a brilliant drive from Valtteri and said a lot about his character," he explained. "He’s had some tough results this season, so this was a demonstration of a remarkable resilience.
"He seems to be feeding off the criticism rather than succumbing to the pressure. He’s building a quiet determination to compete with Lewis, who right now is the best reference in town."
Lewis in the past few races has been acting like there is no one more important than him and that he can do what ever he wants. When he gets reprimanded for bad behavior he states that everyone is out to get him, this is bordering on paranoia. Lewis, take Brawn's advice, step back. You are no different than any other driver, yes you've won a lot of races, but driving the very best car explains a lot of that, does not make you special. You will never pass Michael's record, because you've never won anything in a car that was not the best. Thinking you are so special does not gain you any respect, and utter contempt in some circles. GROW UP!
Yikes! Another old fart getting rude when he thinks a black man is getting uppity.
