Interesting, google translated, quote from this article- http://www.auto-moto...ab-6588088.html
The repair of the parts is not a problem. This could be done in three hours. Problem is the brake line. The engineers have come up with a new solution. Although the second day of testing was completed in a short time, consoles himself co-owner Toto Wolff. "Lewis drove in his first lap with new tires from the medium as a time of 1.19,5 minutes. Least we now know that our car is competitive."
Is this implying they could have run but chose not to? Why not fix it, run this afternoon and install the new solution overnight? Hmm....
The translation is wrong.
"The engineers have to come up with a new solution"
