Had there been an FIA representative present, this would all be moot. And I think Ferrari ARE a bunch of spoiled whiners. I'm a Kimi/Lotus fan...but to think Mercedes didn't gain any valuable data over three days of testing with current drivers and cars on track is burying your head in the sand. OK, it was Pirelli's test. How did they gather operating data? Did Mercedes shut off all their telemetry and stand in a booth? Ever been a racer? I did, for ten years, and if anything the drivers got a fair amount of seat-of-the-pants feedback on the current (and possible future) tires no other drivers on the grid even had the opportunity to learn. Non-grid drivers? OK. Old cars? OK. Current drivers, current cars, current tires, exclusive participarion? Unfair advantage.
