That happens on mine occasionally, but this time it was fully on. Bloody good effort from the engine I must say!

My driving instructor told me when I did my pass plus that if ever you drive through a Ford, it's ok to leave the HB on anythign upto the 3rd notch to create a bit of heat to dry the brakes off.

I've also left it on in his car, DP
