When Hembury and Brawn were interviewed on Sunday they both said the test was run by Pirelli, not Mercedes and that the tyres were anonymous as the data was not for MB. They also stated that no new parts were allowed. If the FIA accept that delaminating tyres are safe, I can accept the uproar but to ensure safety the tyres have to be tested to the limit. With the extra downforce nowadays, a 2010 car cannot test the tyres to the limit of a 2012 car, so testing to date has been incomplete. It seems the fuss is more about nobbling MB than safety and is more about poor admin rather than strategic advantage.
