mark. Ferrari did the same test as merc. tyres for 2014, with some running on revised 2013 tyres. yes, Ferrari might have obtained an iota of info, but totally miniscule to what merc did!
the simple fact is that merc broke the rules, wholesale, Ferrari didn't. and rbr decided that even running a 2011 car would not be of any help to them and didn't take up Pirelli "offer". seeing as many here claim that rbr seek to take any advantage they can , why would rbr turn down the chance to such a test? because it would be of NO benefit.
pcx. 2011 car passed no exhaust heat to the tyres, 2013 does. tyres this year run far hotter, and that is one of the problems. so even if a 2011 is used, the data would be irrelevant.
