Quite rightly so too.

Be interesting to see if this tribunal has any teeth or a quite word from JT to give them a slap on the wrist and a fine will occur.

Clearly there's a case to answer or it wouldn't have gone this far.

during the monaco gp weekend we heard niki lauda stating 'we got in touch with charlie (whiting) before the test', followed by ross brawn stating the team had 'serious issues with the tyres', im not sure but charlie whiting (one of max mosely's allies) may be the fall guy

Assuming Merc have proof of that conversation, pretty unheard of for an FIA member to take the fall for anything. It took a sting operation to get rid of Max and who came of worse in the end, the paper or Max? erm...

"The FIA requested all the other F1 Teams to provide the FIA with information they may have regarding any tests carried out by Pirelli during the 2013 season".

Sounds like the FIA don't have their finger on Pirelli's pulse to me!

This is all Pirreli's fault. They had permission to do the best but had to make it open and fair.

How can Mercedes be held responsible for being the only team invited to the party?

the simple fact that merc told their drivers to wear different helmets, shows that merc were really trying to keep the test secret. and Pirelli have confirmed that the new tyres for Canada were being tested.
