no. str and rbr are two independent teams, which just happen to have red bull as the main investor. there are no rules that prohibit any driver testing for another team, but their individual contracts would prevent it. so ricciardo couldn't test a force india (for example). however when str is classed as the junior rbr team, there would be nothing to prevent interchanging drivers. it might have been nice to see seb doing a few laps in the str ?
putting ricciardo in the rbr was the reason why webber could not drive. the rules for this specific test stated that only two current f1 drivers could drive any car, for a half day each
