Why is it that Merc can have a private days testing???
I know they missed one day of the last test but that doesn't justify an empty track to run the new car round with no onlookers, anyone know the answer???

Under the rules the teams can have 12 days I per-season testing. They usually run together as a cost saving exercise but there's no obligation to do so.
