Caterham to address brake issues

Caterham have been ordered to work with the FIA after a rear brake failure ended Kamui Kobayahsi's Australian GP after a few hundred metres.

Kobayashi careered through the first corner and into a gravel trap at Melbourne's Albert Park, taking out Williams' Felipe Massa in the process.

Massa felt the Japanese was at fault, calling for "a hard penalty".

Kobayashi, however, has escaped any sanction as an investigation has determined the rear brakes were at fault, not driver error.

A stewards' report read: "The stewards determine that the incident was caused by a serious technical failure completely outside the control of the driver.

"The team is directed to work with the FIA technical delegate (Jo Bauer) in determining the cause of the systems failure."
