No action tonight as stewards to submit report on secret Mercedes test

A protest from Scuderia Ferrari and Red Bull Racing regarding the Mercedes Pirelli test was heard by the FIA stewards after the Monaco GP, but as expected no immediate action has resulted, and instead a report will now be considered by the FIA.

The official outcome is that ‘after hearing and collecting information the stewards will write a report to the FIA who may bring the matter before the International Tribunal.’

The two teams had protested Mercedes for a breach of Article 22.4 h) of the sporting regulations, which refers to testing, and expressly bans teams from running with a current car.

The story has developed over the course of the day with Toto Wolff confirming that Mercedes was asked to participate ‘eight or nine days’ before the test, and Stefano Domenicali and Christian Horner making it clear that their teams are adamant that the rules were broken.
