Mercedes had a definite advantage at the weekend Rosberg could push whenever he wanted whereas most of the rest of the teams were protecting their tyres.

Amazing what a couple of weeks and a sneaky tyre test can do.

If Hamilton hadn't made a schoolboy error they would have had a 1-2 on sunday.

@Taz,

I reply in kind my dear fellow, what's ironic is the belief that some major sanction will come out of this, considering the FIA were informed of the test prior to it taking place, let's wait and see shall we.

Next time you consider replying to a post I suggest you mind your language. If you cannot find another word to disagree I recommed you increase your vocabulary.

@Richard,

I believe FIA had full knowledge of what it was doing. Now that they are caught helping a team, they are in damage limitation mode . What do u think?

zib. from what we know at present, it appears that fia did in fact warn Pirelli and merc, but they chose to ignore the fia conditions. what we don't know so far, is whether the fia had an observer at the test, as they are obliged to do. if there was one, then the fia are equally to blame. if there wasn't an observer there, it puts far more blame on merc as they would have known that one was required
