Mercedes is "looking into" an incident involving Lewis Hamilton in the Sochi Autodrom pit lane after the seven-time F1 champion knocked over the front jackman.
The team member thankfully avoided injury after Hamilton overshot his pit box with the 'brake magic' device activated.
The system shifts approximately 90 per cent of the brake bias to the front wheels and is typically used to aid tyre warm-up, although is not deployed during a race.
For Hamilton, it is the second incident this year involving the system given what unfolded in Azerbaijan where the Briton mistakenly reactivated it at the late-race restart, leading to him locking up and spearing off the track at turn one.
Although a guard was fitted to prevent a repeat, the 'magic' device appears to have caused another issue on this occasion.
Upon coming to a stop, Hamilton said via team radio: "Man, magic. Sorry about that. Is he okay?"
Mercedes quickly confirmed a thumbs up shown by the jackman to Hamilton.
Following the incident, a team spokesperson said: "The overshooting was related to the ‘brake magic’ button. We’re looking into it."
