Car News China reports that the car hacks were out on the track on their own.

Both drivers were fortunately unharmed, but these crashed Benzes are two more casualties of car hacks killing press cars on the track. Hey, if you're not crashing, you're not testing, am I right?

To be fair, aren't the brakes in the SLS known to be hard, sudden (the term I remember hearing used was "on or off and not much in between") and without much subtlety?

If so, it's not inconceivable that the guy in the SLS misjudged the brake pressure needed.

That being said, the guy in C63 AMG may have been following closer than he should have been.
