F1 » Red Bull, Ferrari to 'go private' rather that do Young Driver test?

Having seen Mercedes escape lightly from the FIA Tribunal, are two of the German marque's biggest rivals considering running the same private testing gauntlet?

Story is absolute rubbish. The comment Horner made was sarcasm, as in 'If I had known all we would get is a reprimand and young driver exclusion. we'd probably have considered it'. This has been twisted around to read they intend to boycott the young driver event, blah blah blah... Stupid story, more hysterics against Red Bull here... same ole F1 blather.

BS, this is the famous British tabloid sensationalism, RBR and FERRARI will not, they will not break the rules, they cannot test with current drivers, they cannot test with a current car outside of the FIA allowed tests, they can only be supplied with tyres approved by the FIA. No precedent was set by the IT or the FIA, the IT judgment was preconditioned by the FIA representative (Charlie Whiting), although he is supposed to be working for the FIA it is crystal clear that his first loyalty is to THE INTERESTS OF MR F1, these type of farce's will only stop when MR F1 will be made to stop meddling/interfering with the FIA matters.

The way Red Bull, especially Vettel , have been rubbishing Pirrelli, it would serve them right if Pirrelli refused to test with them!
Total Hippocratic anyway from the team that had a ride high lever on they car last year with no penalty, just please remove by the next race!!!

Oohh, I love the sabre-rattling and gauntlet-throwing in F1. It adds to the spectacle! I bet DM and LCDM will have asked their super-lawyers what it is they stand to lose by doing it. But this plan may backfire because the FIA might actually decide to flex their muscles and beat down this "rebellion".

Bring it on!

The FIA obviously thought what Merc. did was wrong so they banned them from the young drivers test. It's a warning for them, and for other teams also. If anyone attempts a similar thing it's not hard to imagine the consequences will be far worse.

Lmao now now girls don't. Frow your dummy out the pram I would pi££ myself if they done it and got merked for it lol I no u said rules can't be changed Richard but it would be a blaitent disregard of the sport unlike merc who fort they was doing nothing wrong so I doubt redbull would put themselves in that position although people on that team thinks its ok not To listen
