F1 2013 – FIA Tribunal: Mercedes argues they did not break rules

Formula One News » F1 2013 – FIA Tribunal: Mercedes argues they did not break rules

With the FIA arguing that Mercedes broke rule article 22, Mercedes have hit back claiming they did not break the rules.

Paul Harris QC, who is defending Mercedes argued his case saying the rules state “any track running time not part of an Event undertaken by a competitor entered in the Championship.”

Meaning Pirelli paid for and ran the test meaning Mercedes did not breach the rules.

“This was not a test undertaken by Mercedes. They are critical words in text of Article 22 – ‘undertaken by’, the Pirelli test was not a test undertaken by Mercedes, it is irrefutable it is a test undertaken by Pirelli.”

“This evidence is confirmed by Pirelli, so the people who were present on the day all unanimously given the same evidence about what was going on, who was doing it, and who was in charge of it. It is undeniable the testing was undertaken by Pirelli.”
