Mercs were found guilty by the tribunal for for breaking the regs under article 22.1 and 151. However the tribunal deemed there was mitigating circumstances regards article 22.1 that the running of the 2013 car was illegal but mercedes got the green light from Whiting and their legal adviser Seb Bernard who are part of the FIA to to run the current WO4 with the two drivers LH and NR and even more important is there is no stipulation in what car can be run in the contract between Pirelli and the FIA so any car can be run under a Pirelli test. Ross Brawn just exposed the loophole in the FIA regs which they will now look to close.
